Placental protein 14 (PP14), also known as progestagen-dependent endometrial protein and pregnancyassociated endometrial a2-globulin, is synthesized by the human secretory endometrium and decidua. We have isolated from a human decidual cDNA library clones corresponding to PP14 and deduced its entire amino acid sequence. PP14 contains 180 amino acids, 18 of which correspond to a putative signal peptide. The predicted molecular weight of the pre-PP14 is 20,555 and that of the mature protein is 18… CONTINUE READING
