Implantation of the mammalian embryo requires profound endometrial changes for successful pregnancy, including epithelial–mesenchymal transition of the luminal epithelium and stromal–epithelial transition of the stromal cells resulting in decidualization. Claudins (Cldn) determine the variability in tight junction paracellular permeability and may play a(More)
The human uterine epithelium is characterised by remarkable plasticity with cyclic changes in differentiation that are controlled by ovarian steroid hormones to optimise conditions for embryo implantation. To understand whether and how cell–cell adhesion is affected, the localisation of junction proteins was studied throughout the menstrual cycle.(More)
