Weight of placental tissues of cows increased exponentially from Day 100 to Day 250 of gestation, but at much slower relative and absolute rates than fetal weight. In addition, growth rate of fetal placental tissues was less than that of maternal placental tissues. Concentrations of DNA, RNA and protein, however, increased in fetal placental but not in maternal placental tissues. Fetal placental tissues therefore exhibited hyperplasia, which probably contributes to increased functional capacity… CONTINUE READING
