The rat endometrium during pregnancy was used as a model system to study fibronectin in vivo. Fibronectin distribution on stromal fibroblasts, as determined by indirect immunofluorescence staining, was studied in relationship to cell shape during decidual transformation. Fibroblasts of the estrus endometrial stroma were elongated cells with a fibrillar pattern of fibronectin on their surfaces. During days 1-6 of pregnancy, as these elongated cells acquired a round morphology, fibronectin… CONTINUE READING
