Pregnancy-associated endometrial alpha 1-globulin (alpha 1-PEG) is quantitatively the major secretory protein product, synthesized and secreted in vitro, of the human decidualized endometrium during pregnancy. This protein has been purified from cytosolic extracts of this tissue and has now been characterized as a 32 kDa somatomedin/insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-binding protein. Immunoreactive alpha 1-PEG isolated from amniotic fluid exhibited identical physiochemical properties and IGF-I… CONTINUE READING
