We examined the distribution and kinetic parameters of sulfohydrolase activity in human amnion, chorion, and decidua using estrone sulfate (E1S) and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate as substrates. Amnion contained low levels of sulfatase activity. Chorion had active sulfohydrolase activity for both substrates, but a significantly greater maximum velocity… CONTINUE READING
