Expression and localization of aminopeptidase N, neutral endopeptidase, and dipeptidyl peptidase IV in the human placenta and fetal membranes.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to determine the distribution of membrane-bound cell surface peptidases, namely aminopeptidase N, neutral endopeptidase, and dipeptidyl peptidase IV in the human placenta and fetal membranes. STUDY DESIGN Frozen tissue sections of the first-trimester chorionic villi, term placentas, and term fetal membranes were stained by… (More)
