Synthesis of placental protein 12 by human decidua.


The synthesis and secretion of placental protein 12 (PP12) were studied in tissue culture using explants of decidua, amnion, chorion, and placenta from seven full term pregnancies. The total amounts of PP12 in media and tissues were measured by RIA, and new protein synthesis and secretion by decidual explants were demonstrated by the incorporation of [35S… (More)
