Hooper, P and Byrne, S and Ockleford, C (2001) Regions responsible for organizing the microtubular cytoskeletons of extra-embryonic membranes. Italian Journal of Anatomy and Embryology, 106 (2 Supp). pp. 331-338. ISSN 1122-6714Full text not available from this repository.
We have identified putative microtubule-organising centres in whole mounts and frozen sections of full term human placenta, amniochorion and first trimester chorionic villus tissue by indirect immunofluorescence confocal laser scanning microscopy. These sites may perform a crucial executive role in the morphogenesis of human extra-embryonic membranes, and also may establish polarity in the amniotic epithelium and mediate the branching pattern of growth essential to the production of the chorionic villus tree.
