The uterine epithelium provides the interface between an embryo and its mother during pregnancy. Calcium-dependent cadherins are adherens junction proteins that undergo major shifts in the uterine epithelium to facilitate the communication between maternal cells and the embryonic milieu during implantation in mammals. They are, therefore, important in trophoblast invasion and the maintenance of pregnancy. We investigated spatiotemporal changes of cadherins throughout pregnancy in the uterine… CONTINUE READING
