Implantation of mammalian embryos into their mother’s uterus ensures optimal nourishment and protection throughout development. Complex molecular interactions characterize the implantation process, and an optimal synchronization of the components of this embryo-maternal dialogue is crucial for a successful reproductive outcome. In the present study, we(More)
Nerve growth factor (NGF), the first identified member of the family of neurotrophins, is thought to play a critical role in the initiation of the decidual response in stress-challenged pregnant mice. However, the contribution of this pathway to physiological events during the establishment and maintenance of pregnancy remains largely elusive. Using NGF(More)
Protein synthesis of the osteoblast has been studied in cortical jaw bone of new-born cats, by electron microscopic autoradiography, after an intravenous injection of tritiated proline. A clear labeling of the endoplasmic reticulum has been observed 5 minutes after the intravenous injection, whereas the Golgi apparatus presented the highest radioacivity(More)
