Effect of platelet-activating factor on the electrophysiology of the human Fallopian tube: early mediation of embryo-maternal dialogue?

Abstract

Platelet-activating factor (PAF) is produced by preimplantation embryos and may be involved in the earliest stages of embryo-maternal dialogue. This study explored the potential effects of PAF acting as a signalling agent on human Fallopian tubal epithelial cells grown as a polarized layer in primary culture. The response of the tubal epithelium was… (More)
