During implantation, the embryonic trophoblast aggressively invades the uterine stroma. The resulting uterine reaction, decidualization, involves differentiation of new cell morphologies and remodeling of the extracellular matrix. This creates an environment that first permits invasion, then controls this invasion to allow the establishment of the placenta. The production, organization, and cellular interactions with the matrix are thought to underlie decidual functions. We have begun a… CONTINUE READING
