Villous trophoblast from first trimester and term placenta expresses the integrin subunits alpha 6 and beta 4, as monitored by immunohistochemistry. The subunits, which co-distribute in all locations, are present at the basal cell surface where cyto- and syncytiotrophoblast make contact with the villous basement membrane and, in addition, in areas of contact between cytotrophoblast or cyto- and syncytiotrophoblast, but both are absent from the apical syncytial surface. This distribution, which… CONTINUE READING
