Uterine epithelium undergoes dramatic changes during early pregnancy in preparation for implantation. We have studied distribution patterns of the desmosomal marker, desmoglein 1&2, in rat uterine epithelial cells during early pregnancy as well as in hormonally stimulated ovariectomised animals. On day 1 of pregnancy as well as in oestradiol treated rats, desmoglein 1&2 staining was localized along the entire length of the lateral plasma membrane. By day 3 and on subsequent days of pregnancy as… CONTINUE READING
