    Expression of placental lactogen (hPL)
    Expression of placental lactogen (hPL), human chorionic gonadotropin beta (hCGβ), and hCGα mRNAs during in vitro differentiation of human cytotrophoblast cells. By day 1, the isolated cytotrophoblast cells are beginning to aggregate. By day 3, many of the cells have fused to form a syncytium; by day 5, syncytialization is nearly complete. hPL, hCG, and hCG mRNA levels were determined by Northern blot analysis.
