Figure 1

Barrier integrity of trophoblast cell lines. (a) Confocal laser scanning micrographs of tight junctions of BeWo, ACH-3P, Jeg-3 and JAR placental cell lines grown on gelatin-coated cover slides day 3 post seeding. Tight junctions are visualized using anti ZO-1 immunohistochemistry, scale bar is 50 µm. (b) Leakage of sodium fluorescein through BeWo, ACH-3P, Jeg-3 and JAR placental cell barriers on day 3, 5 and 7 post seeding. Data points are presented as mean values ± SD for n = 3 and expressed as % of acellular controls.
