Lymphoid cells in decidualized uterine endometrium in early human pregnancy may be essential for successful implantation and placentation. Endometrial granulocytes are prominent in early pregnancy decidua and express some T-cell associated surface antigens (CD2+, CD7+), but little is known of their function. We report the unusually intense binding of the natural-killer (NK) cell marker NKH1 to endometrial granulocytes, which contrasts with their lack of reactivity with other NK-cell markers.
