We previously reported that a cell-surface aminopeptidase, dipeptidyl peptidase IV, is expressed on extravillous trophoblasts (EVT) and suggested the involvement of its enzyme activity in EVT migration. In this study, we examined the expression of another cell-surface peptidase, carboxypeptidase-M (CP-M), at human embryo implantation sites, which catalyses… CONTINUE READING
