Multiple Pregnancy-Associated Glycoprotein (PAG) genes, coding various chorionic products that belong to the aspartic proteinase family (AP), have been discovered in various eutherians (Placentalia). This paper presents cloning of five novel porcine PAG (pPAG) cDNAs: pPAG3, pPAG4, pPAG5, pPAG6, pPAG8 and pPAG10. All cDNAs have been identified by(More)
The PAG family is encoded by distinct genes expressed in extra-embryonic chorionic membranes (TR--trophoblast, TRD--trophectoderm) of various pregnant mammals. The objective of our study was to determine N-glycodiversity of porcine PAG protein family (pPAG) produced in vitro by TR or TRD explants of gilts (n=26) throughout pregnancy (16-77 dpc). Explants(More)
The paper presents the effect of in vivo immuno-neutralization of porcine luteinizing hormone (pLH) by species-homologous porcine antiserum (anti-pLH) administrations on pregnancy maintenance and immunodetection of the PAG proteins in precipitated plasma proteins of pregnant gilts. Pregnant gilts were passively immunized with 100 ml of porcine anti-pLH(More)
This paper compares proteomic interaction-types and binding-effectiveness of secretory chorionic ligands (including pPAGs) with other proteins, i.e. gonadotropin membrane receptors (Rc) isolated from luteal-phase corpora lutea, uterine myometrium and endometrium of cyclic (cCLRc, cMYORc and cENDRc) or pregnant (pCLRc, pMYORc and pENDRc) pigs.(More)
Characterization of the Pregnancy-Associated Glycoproteins (PAG) is important for studies of reproduction of various eutherian domestic, wild and endangered mammals. Distinct chorionic PAG genes are expressed in embryo-origin cells: pre-placental trophoblast (TR) and in placental trophectoderm (TRD) of various entherians. This study demonstrates in vitro(More)
The objective of this study was to localize the immuno-positive porcine PAG (pPAG) proteins within chorionic cells throughout the intensive placenta development as pregnancy advances (16-61 days post coitum - dpc). Placental sections were used for double fluorescent histochemistry with selected primary rabbit anti-pPAG sera. The polyclonals were created(More)
Co-expression of dopamine β-hydroxylase (DβH) and neuropeptide Y (NPY) has never been examined in ovary (OV) and umbilical cord (UC) of the European bison (Eb), the endangered wild species. The OV and UC samples were harvested from seasonally eliminated Eb females (45-120 days post coitum). Frozen histological sections were examined by double fluorescent(More)
The pregnancy-associated glycoprotein-like family (PAG-L) is a large group of chorionic products, expressed in the pre-placental trophoblast and later in the post-implantational chorionic epithelium, and are involved in proper placenta development and embryo-maternal interaction in eutherians. This study describes identification of the PAG-L family in the(More)
Aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) is a ligand-activated transcription factor best known for mediating xenobiotic-induced toxicity. AhR requires aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator (ARNT) to form an active transcription complex and promote the activation of genes which have dioxin responsive element in their regulatory regions. The present study was(More)
This is a pioneer study of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within the entire promoter region (1204 bp) of the dominant pPAG2-L subfamily in the pig. The pPAG2-L subfamily was sequenced/examined using genomic deoxyribonucleic acid (gDNA) templates of crossbreed pigs (Landrace x Large White), and compared to two bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC)(More)
