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)
Lipocalin-2 (Lcn2) is a small glycoprotein involved in a number of biological processes such as inflammation and antibacterial response. In our study, Lcn2 is expressed in the subluminal stromal cells at implantation site on day 5 of pregnancy. The expression of Lcn2 in stromal cells is under the control of progesterone through Akt-c-Myc signaling pathway.(More)
Embryo implantation and decidualization are key steps for successful reproduction. Although numerous factors have been identified to be involved in embryo implantation and decidualization, the mechanisms underlying these processes are still unclear. Based on our preliminary data, Prss56, a trypsin-like serine protease, is strongly expressed at implantation(More)
The establishment of decidualization is a prerequisite of successful pregnancy. Lysyl oxidase (Lox) is a copper-containing amine oxidase which catalyzes cross-linking of collagen and elastin in the ECM. Lox is expressed in the subluminal stroma surrounding the implanting blastocyst on day 5 of pregnancy. From days 6 to 8, the signals for Lox mRNA and(More)
