Progesterone-dependent decidualization of the human endometrium is mediated by cAMP
Progesterone is a key factor in regulating endometrial cell decidualization, but the signal transduction pathways involved in mediating the effects of progesterone are not known. A role of the cAMPExpand

Fibroblast cells from term human decidua closely resemble endometrial stromal cells: induction of prolactin and insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 expression.
Term decidual tissue consists of terminally differentiated decidual cells, bone marrow-derived cells, and fibroblast cells. Since undifferentiated decidual cells are fibroblast-like cells of theExpand

Prostaglandin E2 enhances human endometrial stromal cell differentiation.
Endometrial stromal differentiation (decidualization) is essential for implantation of the developing blastocyst. Because prostaglandins (PGs) are synthesized in the endometrium, and PG-binding sitesExpand

Transcription factor ETS1 is critical for human uterine decidualization.
The aim of this study was to examine whether the transcription factor ETS1 plays a critical role in the regulation of human decidualization. Decidual fibroblast cells were decidualized in vitro byExpand

Application of the aviation black box principle in pediatric cardiac surgery: tracking all failures in the pediatric cardiac operating room.
BACKGROUND Cardiac surgical procedures are complex and require the coordinated action of many. This creates the potential for small failures that could be the substrate for subsequent morbidity orExpand

Retinoic acid suppresses in-vitro decidualization of human endometrial stromal cells.
All-trans retinoic acid (RA) has potent effects on cell differentiation and gene expression. Previous studies have demonstrated that human endometrial stromal cells express mRNA for retinoic acidExpand

Localization of insulin-like growth factor binding protein-4 expression in the developing and adult rat brain: analysis by in situ hybridization.
We have previously isolated insulin-like growth factor binding protein-4 (IGFBP-4) from media conditioned by a neuronal cell line and have detected IGFBP-4 mRNA in selected regions of the developingExpand

Identification of a decidua-specific enhancer on the human prolactin gene with two critical activator protein 1 (AP-1) binding sites.
Deletion analysis of the human PRL promoter in endometrial stromal cells decidualized in vitro revealed a 536-bp enhancer located between nucleotide (nt) -2,040 to -1,505 in the 5'-flanking region.Expand

An Ets motif in the proximal decidual prolactin promoter is essential for basal gene expression.
Transcriptional regulation of the prolactin gene in the decidua differs from that in the pituitary. Several lines of evidence strongly suggest this difference is due to regulation of the prolactinExpand
