Uterine serpins (USs), designated as seRPINA14, are expressed in the endometrium in response to progesterone. All species identified as having USs exhibit epitheliochorial placentation and are in the Ruminantia and Suidae orders of the Laurasiatheria superorder. The objective was to identify US genes in species within and outside Laurasiatheria and evaluate whether evolution of the US gene was associated with development of the epitheliochorial placenta. Through queries of nucleotide and… Expand
ACP 5 ( Uteroferrin ) : Phylogeny of an Ancient and Conserved Gene Expressed in the Endometrium of Mammals 1
Type 5 acid phosphatase (ACP5; also known as tartrateresistant acid phosphatase or uteroferrin) is a metalloprotein secreted by the endometrial glandular epithelium of pigs, mares, sheep, and waterExpand
ACP5 (Uteroferrin): Phylogeny of an Ancient and Conserved Gene Expressed in the Endometrium of Mammals1
TLDR
Endometrial expression of ACP5 is a common feature in all orders of mammals and has been subjected to purifying selection, demonstrating that endometrialexpression arose early in evolution and predates the divergence of therians and prototherians. Expand
Molecular characterization and expression profile of uterine serpin (SERPINA14) during different reproductive phases in water buffalo (Bubalus bubalis).
TLDR
The differential spatio-temporal expression of SERPINA14 in the uterine endometrium of buffalo suggests its plausible important roles in reproduction. Expand
Crosstalk between uterine serpin (SERPINA14) and pregnancy-associated glycoproteins at the fetal-maternal interface in pregnant dairy heifers experimentally infected with Neospora caninum.
TLDR
Examination of expression patterns of the genes SERPINA14, PAG, and PAG2 at the fetal-maternal interface in dairy heifers experimentally infected with N caninum during the second trimester of pregnancy suggests potential disruption of modulation of maternal immune function during infection. Expand
Proteomic analysis of amniotic and allantoic fluid from buffaloes during fetal development.
TLDR
Findings indicate Alpha-2-macroglobulin participes in remodeling and growth of the uterus at beginning of the gestation (first trimester), and these findings indicate that can serve as a potential tool for the early diagnosis of pregnancy in buffaloes. Expand
Uterine serpin (SERPINA 14) correlates negatively with cytokine production at the foetal–maternal interface but not in the corpus luteum in pregnant dairy heifers experimentally infected with Neospora caninum
TLDR
It is suggested that gene expression of the uterine serpin SERPINA14 correlates negatively with the expression of Th1 and Th2 cytokines at the foetal-maternal interface but not in the corpus luteum. Expand
Changes in various endometrial proteins during cloprostenol-induced failure of early pregnancy in mares
TLDR
These studies provide an inventory of many proteins in the uterine lumen during early pregnancy, and a subset for which local endometrial expression is altered when pregnancy is compromised by cloprostenol-induced luteolysis. Expand

TLDR
Around the time of placentation, the period of immunological inertness of the conceptus is replaced by a period of immune activation caused by the expression of interferon genes in ruminants and pigs and MHC class I genes in invasive trophoblast of the horse. Expand
Identification of protein patterns in bovine placenta at early-mid pregnancy - Pilot studies.
TLDR
The obtained results provide new insight into the knowledge about biochemical characteristics of placenta (new proteins) and serve for further studies on the possible markers of physiological/pathological pregnancy or function ofplacenta. Expand
Proteome of the periovulatory oviduct and uterus of goats as related to nutritional balance
TLDR
It was showed that specific proteins of the goat oviduct and uterus expressed during the periovulatory period are modified as the result of nutritional balance, altering the expression of proteins that participate in biological processes such as apoptosis, antioxidant, and immunological activities.

The range of species in which uterine serpins are present and expressed in the uterus includes the goat in addition to the previously described sheep, cow, and pig. Expand

TLDR
A bioinformatics analysis was conducted on the four members of the uterine serpin (US) family of serpins, suggesting episodes of adaptive evolution within the serpin family. Expand
The current molecular phylogeny of Eutherian mammals challenges previous interpretations of placental evolution.
TLDR
A cladistic analysis based on the phylogenetic relationships established by molecular analyses reveals that the basic clades are all characterized by an endotheliochorial or haemochorial placenta, and that the epitheliochial placentA evolved at least three times in a convergent manner. Expand

Comparison of the NH2-terminal sequences of the individual UfAP poly-peptides with the amino acid sequence deduced from the cDNA has indicated a series of at least four posttranslational proteolytic processing steps which generate the various molecular forms of the Uf AP. Expand
Pattern of expression of the uterine milk protein gene and its association with productive life in dairy cattle.
TLDR
The uterine milk protein gene (UTMP) was chosen for this study because of its possible roles in health traits and results of previous studies on the association of the UTMP region with milk production and productive life in dairy cattle. Expand
Pepsin-inhibitory activity of the uterine serpins.

OvUS-1 is the first specific inhibitor of aspartic proteinases to be identified in vertebrates and provides another example of a serpin with "crossover" activity. Expand
Distinct physical and structural properties of the ovine uterine serpin.
TLDR
Results indicate that the conformation of OvUS is distinct from the prototypical serpin because conditions that lead to the large-scale conformational change in other serpins such as antithrombin III and alpha(1)-antitrypsin do not cause similar changes in OvUS. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that epitheliochorial placentation, the least invasive type, is a derived state and factors that may have determined its evolution with reference to conflict theory, as applied to the allocation of resources between mother and fetus are discussed. Expand
Progesterone-induced secretion of dipeptidyl peptidase-IV (cluster differentiation antigen-26) by the uterine endometrium of the ewe and cow that costimulates lymphocyte proliferation.
TLDR
The uterine endometrium synthesizes a biologically active form of DPPIV under the influence of progesterone that is capable of enhancing mitogen-stimulated T-lymphocyte proliferation and, in some pregnant ewes, discrete endometrial stromal cells. Expand
Genomic evolution of the placenta using co-option and duplication and divergence.
TLDR
Using a timecourse microarray analysis including the entire lifetime of the placenta, molecular and genomic changes that underlie placentation are uncovered and it is found that two distinct evolutionary mechanisms were utilized during placental evolution in mice and human. Expand
