The purpose of this study was to localize immunocytochemically a progesterone-dependent protein (PDP) and to determine PDP mRNA levels during the initial stage of the implantation period. Uterine tissue was collected from Day 0-18 postcoital animals. The tissue was processed for immunocytochemical localization of PDP, and the endometrial RNA was isolated and analyzed for PDP gene expression by slot-blot hybridization. PDP was detected immunocytochemically as early as Day 5 postcoitus in the… CONTINUE READING
