Placental programmed cell death: insights into the role of aquaporins.


STUDY HYPOTHESIS Are the placental aquaporins (AQPs) involved in the apoptosis of human trophoblast? STUDY FINDING The general blocking of placental AQPs with HgCl2 and, in particular, the blocking of AQP3 activity with CuSO4 abrogated the apoptotic events of human trophoblast cells. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY Although apoptosis of trophoblast cells is a… (More)
