Adhesiveness of the apical (free) plasma membrane of uterine epithelial cells for trophoblast is essential for the process of human embryo implantation. As epithelial cells are normally repellent, i.e. apically non-adhesive, we argue that a remodelling of the epithelial organization from a polarized to a non-polarized phenotype might prepare the apical pole for cell-cell adhesion during the so-called receptive phase. To identify details of apical adhesiveness we examined human epithelial RL95-2… CONTINUE READING
