The levels of endothelin-1-like immunoreactivity (ET-1-LI) and characteristics of endothelin receptors in the chorionic villous tissue of human placenta were determined. The ET-1-LI level in chorionic villous tissue obtained from normal term placenta was 2,450 +/- 940 pg/g wet weight (mean +/- SD, n = 4). Further analysis using gel permeation chromatography and reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography showed that the main ET-1-LI constituent of ET-1-LI in this tissue was ET-1… CONTINUE READING
