Background: Preimplantation development of mammalia is
characterized by cell surface changes functioning in intercellular communication and adhesion. The glycoconjugate role in cellular interactions has
been analysed for several groups but not in sheep embryos. The binding
patterns of eleven lectins during sheep preimplantation development were
investigated and the role of glycoconjugates in early development was discussed.
Methods: Ultrathin sections from preimplantation ovine embryos (3-7
days) were incubated with different colloidal gold conjugated lectins and
the frequency of gold particles on the cell membrane, some organelles, and
the zona pellucida was evaluated.
Results and Conclusions: We observed a higher staining of WGA, DBA,
and SBA lectins in the intercellular contact zone with respect to the free cell
surface of blastomeres during cleavage. This indicates that the N-acetyl
galactosamine and N-acetyl glucosamine residues may be involved in sheep
morula compaction. In contrast, the trophoblast cell displays an increase of
staining of some lectins previously identified during cleavage (LcH, WGA,
SBA, MPA, and PNA) on the free membrane, and a lack of sugar residues
in the intercellular surface. This polarization of the trophoblast cell surface
is not observed in the inner cell mass and could provide a mechanism for
differentiation within the blastocyst. Intracytoplasmic vesicles show a cytochemical identity with lysosomes in the blastocyst (abundant GlcNAc and
Man/Glc residues) that may reflect a functional relationship between both
organelles in an intracellular cycle. The zona pellucida presents abundant
GalNAc, GlcNAc, and Gal residues during preimplantation ovine development. 0 1994 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

The nature of the molecules present in the cell membrane and its more extrinsic component is of considerable interest because of the unique position of the cell
surface a t the interface between a cell and its external
environment. In particular it is important in the understanding of morphogenesis to characterize the
changes occurring in cell surface components during
development. In most instances, efforts have focussed
on the protein components, though it has been suspected for some time that cellular interactions are dependent upon complex carbohydrates. The critical role
of glycoconjugates in cellular interactions has been
clearly defined by different investigators (Gooi et al.,
1981; Sharon and Lis, 1989; Peacock et al., 1990;
Brandley, 1991).
Cell surface changes in cells and tissue including the
preimplantation mammalian embryo have been investigated with lectins (Lis and Sharon, 1986; Dealtry and

terization of the glycoconjugate composition of blastomeres during early development may provide clues
a s to the macromolecules functioning in intercellular
communication and changes in cell behavior (Shur,
1989; Fenderson and Eddy, 1990).
Early development of mammalian embryo is characterized primarily by a major morphological event
termed compaction that causes a major reorganization
among the cells of the morula. Compaction is a complex
process in which polarization of blastomeres occurs,
cell-cell contacts are maximized, and specialized junctions formed (Rastan el al., 1985; Wiley, 1988; Watson,
1992). This process is a prerequisite for blastocyst for-

tions were carried out in order to assess the carbohydrate specificity of the lectin to the embryonic cells.
In the whole series of experiments we used grids with
sections from the same embryo a s a control for the specific binding of the lectins. These sections were incubated with the lectin-gold complex previously mixed
with the corresponding specific sugar for 1 h r before
use (see Table 1).
Six embryos from each stage were used, six ultrathin
sections per embryo were incubated with lectin and six
micrographs per section were obtained by random sampling.
The frequency of gold particles per square micron
(organelle and zona pellucida) or per micron (plasma
membrane) was determined by counting on the electron micrographs. A double square lattice ((264) is superimposed on each micrograph to estimate the area of
cellular organelles and the length of membrane profiles (Weibel, 1979). The gold particle number of each
structure was counted and this count was standardised
to 1 pm2 (organelle) or 1 pm (plasma membrane) and
the means and standard error of means calculated.
We analyzed several developmental stages of ovine
embryos up to blastula stage by means of colloidal gold
conjugated lectins. The results refer to the frequency of
the gold particles on the cell membrane (the free cell
surface and the intercellular membrane were distinguished), some organelles (intracytoplasmic vesicles
and lysosomes), and the zona pellucida.
The results obtained during the cleavage period have
been analyzed as a whole although we carried out a
complete study of 8-cell stage, early morula and compact morula. Throughout these stages neither qualitative nor quantitative differences were found, and thus
the data are summarized a s a whole in Table 2.
On the free cell surface a sparse staining appeared
for LcH, DBA, SBA, MPA, and PNA lectins and a light
staining for WGA lectin. The intercellular contact surface of the ovine embryonic cells during cleavage (Fig.
la,b) showed light quantity of GalNAc (DBA and SBA)
and GlcNAc (WGA)residues but sialic acid was absent.
Intracytoplasmic vesicles (Fig. lc,d) were very heavily
stained with Con A (MadGlc) and WGA (GlcNAc) lectins. In contrast, lysosomes sparsely showed Man/Glc
(Con A) residues.
Concerning the zona pellucida (Fig. 2) we were able
to detect a very heavy reaction with WGA lectin, as
well as a heavy reaction with DBA (GalNAc), SBA
(GalNAc), MPA (Gal), and PNA (Gal) lectins.
When the embryo reached the blastocyst stage the
lectin labelling shown by the two cell populations, trophectodermal cells and inner cell mass, was separately
The lectin binding profile of the blastocyst zona pellucida (Fig. 2) is similar to the patterns shown during
cleavage stages: very heavy staining for WGA, light for
MPA and PNA and sparse for DBA and GS-11. Only
SBA and DBA lectins decreased their reactions in this
phase, which means that GalNAc residues were lost.
The outer cell surface of the trophectodermal cells
appeared remarkably marked with WGA and LcH lectins (Fig. 3a,c) and lightly stained by SBA (Fig. 3b),
MPA and PNA lectins (Fig. 3d). However, the reaction
shown by DBA, LPA (Fig. 3e), and UEA-I lectins was
sparse. A poor labelling of the intercellular zones was
evidenced except for Con A and UEA-1 lectins. The
reaction to lectins of the free cell surface of the ovine
blastocyst varied qualitatively and quantitatively with
respect to cleavage period. There was a n increase in
staining for LcH, SBA, WGA, MPA, and PNA and new
binding sites for UEA-I and LPA. Concerning the intercellular membrane, there was a specific loss of staining due to the lack of DBA and to the decrease of SBA
and WGA staining.

A heavy reaction to the Con A lectin (Fig. 3f) and a
light one to LcH and WGA lectins was found in the
intracytoplasmic vesicles from ovine blastulae. Lysosomes were also very heavily marked by WGA (Fig.
3g), lightly by Con A (Fig. 3h), and sparsely by LcH.
The specific labelling pattern shown by cell organelles
at the blastula stage was quite different. Intracytoplasmic vesicles globally reduced their staining with WGA
with respect to cleavage stages. In contrast, lysosomes
increased their staining with WGA and LcH lectins.
Inner Cell Mass
There is no specific polarity in the cell membrane of
the blastocyst internal mass. This cell membrane
showed a sparse histochemical reaction against the colloidal gold-conjugated lectins used in this study (Fig.
The intensity of reaction showed by lysosomes varied
in WGA (very heavy), LcH (light), and Con A (sparse).
Nevertheless the intracytoplasmic vesicles reacted
sparsely with LcH and WGA (Fig. 4b,c) and remarkably with Con A (Fig. 4d). Like the trophectodermal
cells, the intracytoplasmic vesicles and the lysosomes
from ICM blastomeres showed qualitative and quantitative differences with respect to the cleavage period.
The results obtained in the present work demonstrate a specific pattern in the distribution of sugar
residues in the preimplantation ovine embryo. During
ovine embryo cleavage the zanes that showed most
sugar residues detected by colloidal gold conjugated
lectins were the zona pellucida (GlcNAc), the intracytoplasmic vesicles (Man/Glc and GlcNAc), and the intercellular contact surface (GlcNAc and GalNAc). In
contrast, a t the blastocyst stage, lectin labelling reduced in the intercellular surfaces but sugar residues
increased on the free cell membrane (ManiGlc,
GlcNAc, and Gal) and lysosomes (GlcNAc).
The zona pellucida presents abundant GalNAc,
GlcNAc, and Gal residues during preimplantation
ovine embryo, but a t the blastocyst stage GalNAc residues are less abundant.

colloidal gold UEA-conjugated particles indicates the
lack of fucosyl residues in the ovine preimplantation

mouse embryo. Likewise, during preimplantation embryonic development we have only sparsely detected
sialic acid residues (LPA) in the microvilli of the blastocyst trophectodermal cells. Chavez (1990) reported
the presence of sialic acid residues on the trophoblast
in the mouse. According to this author a loss of these
residues is necessary to accomplish implantation.

embryo during the stages analyzed, WGA shows the
highest staining in our panel of lectin staining, indicating a greater distribution of GlcNAc residues during
these development phases. These wide differences in
the staining with GS-I1 and WGA lectins (both lectins
have the same sugar affinity) may be due to the fact
that GS-I1 lectin has high affinity and interacts with a
non-reducing terminal GlcNAc group, but WGA has
wider binding sites where 2-6 sugar residues can fit
(Goldstein and Poretz, 1986). In contrast to our results,
Kimber and Bird (1985) located BSL-I1 (GS-11) receptors in the preimplantation mouse embryo. Cell membranes from preimplantation ovine embryo show abundant GlcNAc residues, specially in the microvilli of the
trophoblastic cells. Intracytoplasmic vesicles during
cleavage and lysosomes in the zonal blastocyst also
show abundant GlcNAc residues.
The intracytoplasmic vesicles from mammal embryos do not have a definite function. An energy reserve function and a role in the cavitation process
within the blastula have been proposed in other models
(Mohr and Trounson, 1982) for embryos other than
ovine. In the present work, we found a significant cy-
tochemical identity of vesicles and lysosomes during
preimplantation development which demonstrated
these vesicles could be related to lysosomes in a n intracellular cycle. In this sense, Hyttel et al. (1988) suggest that the intracytoplasmic vesicles from bovine fertilized oocytes are involved in the formation of
metabolic cell complexes. With respect to the participation of these organelles in the cavitation process, the
intracytoplasmic vesicles of morula cell are heavily
stained for ConA (MadGlc) a n WGA (GlcNac) but i t is
sparse in the intercellular of trophectodermal cells.
This could mean that intracytoplasmic vesicles do not
suffer exocytosis during the cavitation process or the
sugar residues of glicoproteins are modified, since no
membranes appear with such a definite staining in the
The abundant labelling of the ovine zona pellucida
for Gal, GalNac, and GlcNac sugars during the preimplantation period is in agreement with the observations made by several authors (Kan et al., 1990; Shalghi et al., 1991; Miller et al., 1993). In this sense, it is
highly significant that the zona pellucida is a distinctive extracellular matrix to which have been attributed
the functions of species specificity of fertilization, block
to polyspermy, and protection of the embryo during
early development (Riddell et al., 1992). Boice et al.
(1992) indicated that the bovine oviduct-specific secretory glycoconjugates become intimately associated
with early cleavage stage embryos, thus possibly playing a critical role in normal embryonic development.
The differences in sugar composition described in the
ovine preimplantation embryo should reflect molecular characteristics whose developmental variations
may have a functional significance. In the present
work we detect a regional polarization of ManIGlc (Con
A and LcH), GalNAc (DBA and SBA), and GlcNAc
(WGA) residues in the intercellular contact zone of the
blastomeres during cleavage when they are compared
with the cell free surface. In contrast, the increase in
the trophoblast cell membrane of some carbohydrates
previously identified during cleavage (Man/Glc,
GlcNAc, and Gal) is evidence of cell surface modifications, and so they could play a basic role during the
preimplantation period.
