This article focuses on the potential roles of interferons (IFNs) in establishing uterine receptivity to implantation. A common feature of the peri-implantation period of pregnancy in most mammals is production of type I and/or type II IFNs by trophoblasts that induce and/or stimulate expression of an array of IFN-stimulate genes (ISGs). These effects range from pregnancy recognition signaling in ruminants through IFN tau to effects on cellular functions of the uterus and uterine vasculature… CONTINUE READING
