Comparison of LPS-stimulated release of cytokines in punch versus transwell tissue culture systems of human gestational membranes

Abstract

BACKGROUND Cytokine signaling within the amnionic, chorionic and decidual extraplacental gestational membranes plays an important role in membrane rupture and the timing of birth. The predominant in vitro explant culture system for evaluating cytokine induction in human gestational membranes has been the free-floating biopsy punch culture. Punch systems… (More)
