The cell membrane-associated, polymorphic mucin, MUC1, has been proposed to hinder implantation by virtue of its anti-adhesive properties. Consistent with this proposal is the observation of a dramatic decrease in MUC1 protein and mRNA expression in the uterine epithelium of several species at the time of implantation. In contrast, little change in… CONTINUE READING
