Endometrial Stroma Multinucleated Cells in Uterine Epithelium Binuclear Giant Cells 20% of fetal placenta Invade endometrium Source Placental lactogen Pregnancy specific protein B

Placental Lactogens (Protein Hormones) Prolactin-like activity: Stimulates Milk Synthesis Not Present in Pig and Mare May regulate maternal metabolism to facilitate fetal growth High levels in the last 1/3 of gestation. High levels facilitate higher milk production. Dairy cows have higher blood concentrations than beef cows Pregnancy Specific Protein B Unique to ruminants Function uncertain

Has been used to detect pregnancy Cattle, sheep, deer Can be used to detect pregnancy in cows after day 25 Not early pregnancy factor!!! Diffuse Placenta Horse Pig Microcotyledons
