The aim of this study was to use proteomics‐based approach to examine differences in protein expression in placenta derived from assisted reproductive technology (ART) and normal pregnancy. Using 2‐DE we found that, compared with the control group, 12 spots in standard in vitro fertilization group and 18 spots in intracytoplasmic sperm injection group were identified as significantly differentially expressed proteins. Among them, six spots were differentially expressed in both standard IVF and… 

Proteomic analysis of placentas from cloned cat embryos identifies a set of differentially expressed proteins related to oxidative damage, senescence and apoptosis

A specific pattern of abnormal protein expression is associated with the impaired development and functions of cloned placentas and hence with decreased fetal viability, and strategies aimed at restoring normal placental protein expression may increase the efficiency of somatic cell nuclear transfer and transgenic cat production and help restore endangered species.

Ultrastructural Study on Human Placentae from Women Subjected to Assisted Reproductive Technology Treatments1

Thickening of the placental barrier, decreased density of apical microvilli, and increased number of vacuoles observed in syncytiotrophoblast have been detected in term placentae derived from women who have undergone assisted reproduction indicating downregulation of maternofetal exchanges in their placenta.

Altered Protein Expression Profiles in Umbilical Veins: Insights into Vascular Dysfunctions of the Children Born after In Vitro Fertilization1

The data for the first time reveal the protein expression profile in blood vessels of IVF offspring and provide information for further mechanism study and evaluation of risks of cardiovascular abnormality in IVF children.

The Use of Proteomics in Assisted Reproduction.

A brief overview of the techniques used in proteomic analyses is presented and a comprehensive presentation of recent data from mass spectrometry-based proteomic studies in humans, regarding all components of ARTs, including the male and female gamete, the derived zygote and embryo, the endometrium and the ART offspring both pre- and postnatally are presented.

Evidence of Placental Autophagy during Early Pregnancy after Transfer of In Vitro Produced (IVP) Sheep Embryos

It is concluded that high autophagic activity in IVP placentae can be a successful temporary counterbalance to the retarded vasculogenesis and the reduction of foetal growth observed in pregnancies after transfer of IVP embryos.



Protein profiles of bovine placenta derived from somatic cell nuclear transfer

A global proteomics approach using 2‐DE and MS revealed composite profiles of key proteins involved in abnormal placenta derived from SCNT, and suggested expression abnormality of these genes in SCNT placentA, resulting in fetal losses following SCNT.

An initial proteomic analysis of human preterm labor: placental membranes.

Functional proteomics holds the potential not only to define the underlying molecular components, but also to identify novel diagnostic tools and targets for rational drug intervention in human preterm labor.

Identification of multiple differentially expressed messenger RNAs in normal and pathological trophoblast.

Findings provide several interesting candidates for regulation of tumorigenic expression as well as early placentation development, including those involved in protein synthesis, metabolism, intercellular communication, and regulation of gene expression (Krüppel-like zinc finger, TIS11d and hnRNPA1).

Expression profile and protein levels of placental products as indirect measures of placental function in in vitro-derived bovine pregnancies.

The authors' results indicated that differential patterns of secretion of bPL and bPSPB into the maternal and foetal systems occurred at distinct stages of gestation, and these were associated with altered conceptus development after in vitro embryo manipulations, indirectly demonstrating deviations in placental function in IVP pregnancies.

Identification and analysis of altered α1,6‐fucosylated glycoproteins associated with hepatocellular carcinoma metastasis

A high‐throughput glycomic approach which consisted of 2‐DE, electronic transfer of proteins, lectin affinity blot and precipitation, and MALDI‐TOF‐MS/MS, found the alteration of CK8, annexin I, and annexin‐II both in their expression levels and their glycan parts might be related to metastatic ability, and play a critical role in the process of HCC metastasis.

Circulating placental protein 14: in the first trimester of spontaneous and IVF pregnancies.

The data suggest that in contrast to ovarian synthesis of steroids and the peptide relaxin, ovarian stimulation results in an impairment of PP14 synthesis, and that this is most marked when clomiphene citrate has been used.

Effects of Embryo Culture on Angiogenesis and Morphometry of Bovine Placentas During Early Gestation1

Placentas from embryos produced in vitro using a semidefined culture system exhibited a greater degree of aberrant development of the placenta during early gestation than with placentas produced in vivo or in vivo using an undefined culture system.

Pathologic Features of Placentas From Singleton Pregnancies Obtained by In Vitro Fertilization and Embryo Transfer

A relationship between these placental morphologic features and the superficial implantation and/or inadequate orientation of the blastocyst after IVF and intrauterine embryo transfer is proposed.

Histological characteristics of placentas from assisted reproduction programs.

Microscopic examination showed that placentas from assisted reproduction programs present with more frequent pathological findings, which could provide better understanding of different pathological conditions of pregnancies and labor in women with artificial insemination.

Angiogenesis and Morphometry of Bovine Placentas in Late Gestation from Embryos Produced In Vivo or In Vitro1

Findings are consistent with the concept that compensatory mechanisms exist in the vascular beds of placentas from bovine embryos produced in vitro.
