Embryo implantation requires a precise synchronism between the receptive uterus and activated blastocyst and is regulated by complicated molecular networks. Although many implantation-related genes have been identified, the crosstalk among them is still unknown. Snail, a transcription repressor, plays a central role during epithelial-mesenchymal transition.(More)
Decidualization is an essential step in the establishment of pregnancy. However, the functional contributions of long intergenic noncoding RNAs (LincRNAs) to decidualization have not been explored. To explore the regulation and role of LincRNAs during human decidualization, human endometrial stromal cells (HESCs) are induced to undergo in vitro(More)
L-Arginine (L-Arg), a conditional essential amino acid in adults, has been shown to enhance pregnancy outcome. Argininosuccinate synthase (Ass1) and argininosuccinate lyase (Asl) are the key enzyme for L-Arginine (L-Arg) biosynthesis. Based our microarray analysis, Ass1 expression is upregulated significantly at implantation site on day 5 of pregnancy(More)
