Rat gestation sites were obtained on days 10 through 16 of normal pregnancy. Light and electron microscopic examination of day-10 sites revealed a consistent complex pattern of stromal cell morphologies. Six distinct regions were identified: an antimesometrial region of epithelioid decidual cells that form the gestation chamber containing the embryo and extraembryonic membranes; an abembryonic antimesometrial decidual region, the decidual crypt, where the cells are separated by large… CONTINUE READING
