Trophoblast Stem Cell Marker
Trophoblast stem cells (TSC) are the precursors of the differentiated cells of the placenta. The ability to self-renew of trophoblast stem cell depends on FGF4 signaling. Sino Biological provides a comprehensive set of tools for trophoblast stem cell marker related studies, including recombinant proteins, antibodies (rabbit MAb & PAb, mouse MAb), ELISA kits, and ORF cDNA clones.

Trophoblast Stem Cell Background
Trophoblast stem cells (TSC) are the precursors of the differentiated cells of the placenta. The blastocyst is made up of three main parts: the blastocoel (an internal, fluid-filled cavity), the inner cell mass (ICM), and the trophoblast. When the embryo was a morula, the surrounding trophoblast precursors caused fluid to be secreted into the morula (utilizing sodium pumps in the trophoblast cell membranes); this secretion created the blastocoel cavity. The ICM will later become the adult organism; human embryonic stem cells can be derived from the ICM. Lastly, the trophoblast is a monolayer of cells, specifically polarized epithelial cells, which surround the blastocoel and ICM, similar to their future role of surrounding the fetus as its placenta.
