A disintegrin and metalloproteinase (ADAM) 19 may contribute to multiple processes including proteolysis, adhesion and intracellular signalling. These processes are also critical for embryo implantation. The aim of this study was to investigate the spatio-temporal expression of the ADAM19 in rhesus monkey uteri on days 12, 18 and 26 of pregnancy. The results showed that in the cloned monkey 346 bp ADAM19 gene fragment and 114 amino acid residues were 98 and 100% identical to those of human… CONTINUE READING
