We developed a mouse monoclonal antibody, S2n8, by immunizing mice i.p. with human decidual cells collected in the first trimester of pregnancy. By indirect immunofluorescence staining of frozen sections, S2n8 was found to react with decidual cells and endometrial stromal cells throughout the menstrual cycle, but not with endometrial glandular cells or with the endometrial surface epithelium. Judging from the fluorescence intensity, the antigen expression on stromal cells was weak in the… CONTINUE READING
