Caption: Placenta. Light micrograph of a section through the decidua of a placenta, showing the characteristic large polygonal cells. The placenta is the temporary organ that connects a developing foetus to its mother. The decidua is the maternal portion of the placenta and is formed from the endometrium (lining of the womb) under the influence of the female sex hormone progesterone. Magnification: x150 when printed at 10 centimetres wide. Human tissue.
