Spontaneous early and mid-gestation fetal losses occur in swine. At both stages, endometrial lymphocytes associated with smaller, paler conceptuses have fewer pro-angiogenic and more pro-inflammatory cytokine transcripts compared with robust conceptuses. We hypothesized that similar differences occur in conceptus-associated dendritic cells (DCs). Using laser capture-microdissection, dendritic cell-specific intercellular adhesion molecule-grabbing non-integrin (DC-SIGN)(+) cells were isolated… CONTINUE READING
