Abstract: Rapidly growing cytotrophoblasts were isolated from early human chorionic villi and the Papanicolaou method was used to characterize their cytology and transformation into syncytiotrophoblasts. Cytotrophoblasts fused and formed binucleated cells or mononucleated intermediate cells. Syncytial cells were formed by fusion of small cytotrophoblasts or intermediate cells and cytotrophoblasts. Glycosaminoglycans were produced in cytotrophoblasts and released extracellularly . Here they were accumulated andlor diffused into a continuous layer covering the cells. Glycosaminoglycans in syncytial cells were contained in well defined membranous sacs. Cytotrophoblasts only grown beyond confluence differentiated into villi with a villus-like histology.
