Loss of laminin and type IV collagen in uterine luminal epithelial basement membranes during blastocyst implantation in the mouse.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Removal of the uterine luminal epithelium and its basement membrane is necessary for successful implantation of invasive blastocysts. Few reports, however, have specifically addressed the penetration and loss of the uterine luminal epithelial basement membrane (UEBM). We investigated the loss of UEBM by examining the distribution of laminin and… (More)
