Rodent Placenta Histology

Placental trophospongium in initial pregnancy (Galea spixii) related to the guinea pig, has placental similarities to those of humans.


  • A - HE The placenta mostly consists of trophospongium (tsp) around the maternal blood channels (mbc). Layers of cellular trophoblast (ct) are situated on fetal mesenchyme along the central excavation, covered by syncytial trophoblast (syt).
  • B - TEM The trophoblast cells have large intercellular spaces in between and towards the syncytiotrophoblast.

Scale bars = 0.1 mm for histology and 2 μm for TEM.
