  • Placenta
  • 1 April 2007
This review examines the strengths and weaknesses of animal models of human placentation and pays particular attention to the mouse and non-human primates. Analogies can be drawn between mouse andExpand

Human endothelial colony-forming cells protect against acute kidney injury: role of exosomes.
The administration of certain progenitor cells is protective in experimental acute kidney injury (AKI), and mechanisms may involve the release of paracrine factors. Endothelial colony-forming cellsExpand

  • Medicine, Biology
  • Journal of experimental zoology. Part B…
  • 15 March 2006
Analysis of molecular data sets has provided new insights into higher-level relationships of living Eutheria, including the recognition of Afrotheria as a novel taxon. This offers an opportunity toExpand

Comparative aspects of trophoblast development and placentation
Based on the number of tissues separating maternal from fetal blood, placentas are classified as epitheliochorial, endotheliochorial or hemochorial. We review the occurrence of these placental typesExpand

Spatial and temporal patterns of expression of messenger RNA for insulin-like growth factors and their binding proteins in the placenta of man and laboratory animals.
To better understand the role of the insulin-like growth factors (IGF-I and -II) and their binding proteins (IGFBPs 1-6) in placental development and function, it is important to review similaritiesExpand

What can comparative studies of placental structure tell us?--A review.
The diversity of placental structures in Eutherian mammals is such that drawing generalizations from the definitive forms is problematic. There are always areas of reduced interhaemal distanceExpand

Endothelial Microparticle Formation by Angiotensin II Is Mediated via Ang II Receptor Type I/NADPH Oxidase/ Rho Kinase Pathways Targeted to Lipid Rafts
Objective—Circulating microparticles are increased in cardiovascular disease and may themselves promote oxidative stress and inflammation. Molecular mechanisms underlying their formation andExpand

Placentation in cloned cattle: structure and microvascular architecture.
To elucidate the morphological differences between placentas from normal and cloned cattle pregnancies reaching term, the umbilical cord, placentomes and interplacentomal region of the fetalExpand

  • 1 October 2012
Placenta has a wide range of functions. Some are supported by novel genes that have evolved following gene duplication events while others require acquisition of gene expression by the trophoblast.Expand

Transfer of microRNA-486-5p from human endothelial colony forming cell-derived exosomes reduces ischemic kidney injury.
Administration of human cord blood endothelial colony-forming cells (ECFCs) or their exosomes protects mice against kidney ischemia/reperfusion injury. Here we studied the microRNA (miRNA) content ofExpand
