Size, number and density of blood vessels in placentomes from control and FTY720 treated ewes. a) Size of placentomal blood vessels. The panel compares the mean ± SE size of caruncular (Maternal) and cotyledonary (Fetal) blood vessels in samples of placentome tissue from control (orange bars) and FTY720 (white bars) treated ewes. b) Number of placentomal vessels. The panel compares the mean ± SE number of caruncular and cotyledonary blood vessels in samples of placentome tissue from control and FTY720 treated ewes (* P < 0.05). c) Density of placental vessels. The panel compares the mean ± SE average density of caruncular and cotyledonary blood vessels in samples of placentome tissue from control and FTY720 treated ewes. Legend: Cotyledon, shallow region of placentome near the fetal side; Caruncle, deep region of placentome near the capsule side; Middle, middle region of placentome (* P < 0.05)
