Part of the trophoblast

Part of the trophoblast from the lateral (equatorial) aspect of the embryo, to show the "brush border" lining the lacunar spaces of the syncytiotrophoblast. The small capillary on the right connects the lacunar spaces of the trophoblast with the nearby arteriovenous sinusoids.
