Glycodelin-A (GdA) has been proposed to represent a potential biomarker of endometrial function, but little is known about its expression during the different phases of the menstrual cycle and under pathological conditions. In the light of its potential importance also in embryo implantation, we aimed to evaluate the expression profile of GdA as well as the(More)
To examine in detail a class of peptides that inhibit the polymerization of deoxyhemoglobin S, we assayed the L-amino acids and 22 dipeptides for their effect on deoxyhemoglobin S solubility. Of the amino acids, the aromatics (phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan) significantly increased deoxyhemoglobin S solubility, as did high concentration of(More)
