Lectin-induced deciduoma formation in the pseudopregnant rat.


Decidual cell induction in the pseudopregnant rat was examined in this study using the lectin concanavalin A (ConA). The histochemical binding of the lectin to the uterine cell surface at the time of deciduomatic induction was also studied. ConA was found to induce significant deciduomata (decidual-like tissue) in the uterine horn when injected… (More)
