Furin, a proprotein convertase (PC), is ubiquitously expressed and implicated in many physiological and pathological processes. This study is aimed to identify the role of furin in human trophoblast invasion and migration. Furin was found to be highly expressed in placental villi of both rhesus monkeys and human beings during early pregnancy. Specifically,(More)
Embryo implantation involves invasion of placental extravillous trophoblast cell (EVTs) into the uterus. Hyperactive EVT invasion occurs in hydatidiform moles and choriocarcinomas. We have previously demonstrated that the 20S proteasome is involved in mouse embryo implantation and its action is mediated via regulating the expression and activities of matrix(More)
