In human and non-human primates, migratory trophoblasts penetrate the uterine epithelium, invade the endometrium, enter the uterine vasculature, and migrate within the arteries. The mechanisms that regulate this directional migration are unknown. We have used early gestation macaque trophoblasts to test the hypothesis that trophoblast migration is regulated(More)
Trophoblast migration within the endometrium and uterine vasculature is essential for normal placental and fetal development. We previously demonstrated that macaque trophoblasts express the chemokine receptor CCR5 and that this receptor mediates trophoblast migration toward RANTES (regulated upon activation normal T-cell expressed and secreted). In the(More)
