Abstract in Portuguese
O presente trabalho estudou a expressão da conexina 43 nas células trofoblásticas gigantes bovinas, em especial nas células trofoblásticas gigantes binucleadas. Foram utilizadas 12 amostras de placenta bovina, divididas em três grupos segundo a fase gestacional, primeiro terço, segundo terço e terceiro terço da gestação. O tecido placentário foi fixado em solução metacarn e, posteriormente, submetido ao método tradicional de inclusão em parafina. A detecção da conexina 43 foi realizada através de imuno-histoquímica, pelo método de amplificação da tyramida, utilizando como anticorpo primário policlonal a imunoglobulina de coelho anti-conexina 43 de camundongo. Os resultados deste trabalho indicaram que as células trofoblásticas gigantes bovinas são capazes de expressar a conexina 43 nas três fases da gestação. A distribuição da conexina 43 evoluiu com a progressão da gestação, mas ficou limitada ao interior das células trofoblásticas gigantes bovinas, sem formar marcações pontuais na membrana citoplasmática que pudessem indicar a formação de junções comunicantes. A avaliação de diferentes protocolos histológicos e imuno-histoquímicos permitiu estabelecer a melhor metodologia para a preservação do arranjo tecidual da placenta bovina e a identificação da conexina 43 nas células trofoblásticas gigantes bovinas

Abstract in English
The present study has researched the expression of Connexin-43 in bovine trophoblast giant cells, especially in binucleate trophoblast giant cells. Twelve samples of bovine placenta were used, divided into three groups according to the gestational phase, first part, second part and third part of gestation. The placental tissue was fixed in Methacarn solution and later submitted to the traditional method, that is, embedded in paraffin. The detection of Connexin-43 was done through immunohistochemistry by the tyramide amplification method, using as polyclonal primary antibody, rabbit immunoglobuline anti-mouse Connexin-43. The results of this study have revealed that the bovine trophoblast giant cells are capable of the expression of Connexin-43 in the three phases of gestation. The distribution of Connexin-43 evolved as gestation progressed, but was limited to the interior of the bovine trophoblast giant cells without punctate markings in the cytoplasmic membrane which could indicate the formation of communicating junctions. The assessment of different histological and immunohistochemical protocols allowed us to establish the best methodology for the preservation of the tissue arrangement of bovine placenta and the identification of Connexin-43 in the bovine trophoblast giant cells
