PROBLEM The nature of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) antigen expression on rat placentas, trophoblast cell lines, and tumors derived from trophoblast cells was explored. METHOD OF STUDY Cytohistochemical and flow cytometric analysis and molecular techniques. RESULTS MHC antigen expression and genomic imprinting on the placenta and on trophoblast cells varies with the time of gestation and with the type of MHC antigen. CONCLUSIONS There is no correlation in trophoblast cells… CONTINUE READING
