ExPRESSION OF THE PL FAMILY DuRING TROPHOBLAST CELL MORPHOGENESIS. The most striking feature of the PL family is that its members are expressed in cell-, positional-, and temporal-specific patterns, which provide excellent markers of trophoblast cell differentiation (see 126). The PL family can be divided into two categories based on their expression during gestation: midpregnancy (PL-I) and late-pregnancy (PL-Iv, PL-Im, PL-II, PLP-A, PLP-B, PLP-C).
