Is oncofetal fibronectin a trophoblast glue for human implantation?

Abstract

Using an antibody probe specific for the class of fibronectins that contain the oncofetal domain, it was shown that oncofetal fibronectin (onfFN) is present wherever trophoblasts make contact with extraplacental extracellular matrix (ECM). In normal human implantation sites, onfFN was localized to a highly specific region-the ECM connecting extravilous… (More)
