Although decidual stromal cells (DSC) have classically been considered to play a nutritional role during pregnancy, several reports have demonstrated that they can also exert different immune activities. Furthermore, some authors have occasionally found antigens on DSC normally expressed by immune cells. In this study, we isolated and cultured 12 human DSC lines and studied them with immunocytochemistry and flow cytometry using monoclonal antibodies against antigens associated with… CONTINUE READING
