Passive immunization of pregnant mice against early pregnancy factor causes loss of embryonic viability.

Abstract

Early pregnancy factor (EPF) is a monitor of the incidence of fertilization and the progress of the early embryo. To determine whether, as well as being a marker of embryonic viability, EPF is also necessary for embryonic survival, passive immunization studies with monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies to EPF were carried out on pregnant mice.
