Trophoblast Differentiation in Human Development

Regen Center Glossary

Trophoblasts are the outermost cell layer of a blastocyst primarily responsible for the implantation process [1]. A trophoblast develops into extra-embryonic tissues, and these include the placenta. [2] Trophoblasts also functions in controlling oxygen and metabolite exchange that transpires between the embryo and the mother [3]. Trophoblasts are also sometimes referred to as trophoderm. [4] Published Clinical Citations [1] ^ Hibaoui, Youssef, and Anis …

Blastocyst Developmental Stages and Transfer

Regen Center Glossary

Blastocyst are embryos that has undergone development five or six days post fertilization period. The number of cells that a human blastocyst may contain ranges between 70 and 120. Blastocyst occur after the morula enters the females uterine cavity and develops a fluid-filled cavity. The morula then becomes what appears to be a hollow ball of cells that is also known …
