OBJECTIVE Progesterone-induced uterine protein-1, a product of secretory endometrial stromal cells (relative molecular mass 70,000, isoelectric point 5.7), was immunolocalized in endometrium and placenta. STUDY DESIGN Biopsies were performed to obtain human endometrium and placenta throughout the menstrual cycle and gestation. Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues (n = 74) were sectioned and immunohistochemically stained for progesterone-induced uterine protein-1 by the avidin-biotin… CONTINUE READING
