The first differentiation event occurring in the preimplantation mouse blastocyst is the formation of inner cell mass (ICM) derived primitive endoderm (PrE) cells, some of which migrate over the inner surface of the trophectoderm to establish the parietal endoderm layer. Reichert's membrane, a basement membrane located between the trophectoderm and the emerging endodermal layer, is implicated in this migration. In this study, F9 murine embryonal carcinoma cells were used as an in vitro model for embryonic endoderm to investigate the regulation of laminin secretion by these cells during their differentiation under serum-free culture conditions. The formation of PrE-like cells was induced using retinoic acid, and the cells were then cultured with dibutyryl cAMP (dbcAMP), forskolin, or transforming growth factor (TGF) beta 1 or beta 2, and the levels of secreted laminin were measured using ELISA. dbcAMP and forskolin stimulated (p < 0.01) laminin secretion, whereas TGF-beta 1 decreased (p < 0.01) the secretion of laminin by PrE-like cells during a 72-h culture period (without influencing laminin deposition by these cells). In contrast, TGF-beta 2 did not significantly influence (p > 0.05) laminin secretion. The results of in vitro migration experiments using mouse ICMs prepared by immunosurgery indicated that, unlike fibronectin, neither laminin nor type IV collagen supported the outward movement of differentiating PrE-like cells. These findings support a potential role for TGF-beta 1 in influencing the establishment of the parietal endoderm cell layer within the mouse blastocyst by reducing the extent of laminin deposition in Reichert's membrane during endoderm cell migration.
