Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The amnion is believed to be derived from either cytotrophoblastic cells or embryonic ectoderm. However, it produces and secretes CA 125, which is considered a differentiation antigen of fetal coelomic epithelium derived from the mesoderm of germ cells. To verify this, the immunohistochemical localization of CA 125 in human fetal tissues (between 7 and 23 weeks of gestation) derived from the ectoderm, endoderm, or mesoderm, and in the fetal membranes and placenta was studied. Among the mesoderm-derived tissues, only the fetal coelomic epithelium-related tissues were positive for anti-CA 125 from 15 weeks of gestation. The endoderm-derived tissues did not react with anti-CA 125. However, among the ectoderm-derived tissues, only the periderm reacted with anti-CA 125 from 7 weeks until it sloughed from the stratum intermedium by 23 weeks of gestation. Among the fetal membranes and placenta, only the amnion reacted with anti-CA 125 from 9 weeks to term. These findings indicate that the amnion and the periderm, both of which constitute the epithelia covering the amniotic cavity, in addition to the fetal coelomic epithelium-related tissues, produce CA 125.
