Specialized trophoblast cells derived from the embryonic trophectoderm play a pivotal role in the establishment of the placenta. Leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) is one of the predominant cytokines present in the placenta(More)
Successful embryo implantation requires synchronous development and communication between the blastocyst and the endometrium, however the mechanisms of communication in humans are virtually unknown. Recent studies have revealed that microRNAs (miRs) are present in bodily fluids and secreted by cells in culture. We have identified that human blastocysts(More)
To investigate the spatial and temporal immunolocalisation and staining intensity of the Notch signalling family in endometrium of fertile and infertile women, endometrial biopsies were collected by curettage from 25 fertile women across the menstrual cycle and 10 infertile women in the mid secretory phase of menstrual cycle. Immunohisotchemistry was(More)
