Human endometrial epithelial cells (EECs) are nonadhesive for embryos throughout most of the menstrual cycle. During the so-called implantation window, the apical plasma membrane of EECs acquire adhesive properties by undergoing a series of morphological and biochemical changes. The human endometrial-derived epithelial cell line, RL95-2, serves as an in vitro model for receptive uterine epithelium because of its high adhesiveness for trophoblast-derived cells. In contrast, the HEC-1-A cell line… CONTINUE READING
