The human endometrium is a remarkably dynamic tissue, undergoing cycles of proliferation, differentiation and breakdown every 28 days. In preparation for embryo implantation, the endometrium differentiates or decidualizes, involving widespread morphological and functional differentiation of endometrial stromal cells. If pregnancy occurs, the decidua regulates trophoblast invasion and forms the maternal component of the placenta. Uterine remodeling has long been known to be regulated by the… CONTINUE READING
