Abstract

This text reviews briefly the context in which epigenetics regulate gene expression in trophoblast development and function. It is an attempt to focus on a limited number of recent papers that, according to the author, shed new light on placental development, and constitute possible trails for improving knowledge and women follow-up in pathological pregnancies.
