Gestational Regulation of Granulocyte-Colony Stimulating Factor Receptor Expression: MATERIALS AND METHODS(1)

Tissue Samples Placental tissues were obtained from 11 first- (6-12.5 wk gestation) and 10 second-trimester (13-20 wk gestation) terminations of normal, uncomplicated pregnancies, 7 third-trimester vaginal deliveries (29-40 wk gestation), and one third-trimester elective cesarean section. Three patients undergoing first- … Continue reading

Gestational Regulation of Granulocyte-Colony Stimulating Factor Receptor Expression in the Human Placenta(2)

The placenta is one of the few nonhemopoietic tissues to express G-CSF. In the mouse, G-CSF has been detected in placental spongiotrophoblast and labyrinthine tropho-blast, and both first- and third-trimester human placental explants secrete biologically active G-CSF. Although its function … Continue reading

Gestational Regulation of Granulocyte-Colony Stimulating Factor Receptor Expression in the Human Placenta(1)

The regulated growth of the placenta is critical for fetal growth and development. Normal placental development relies upon the controlled invasion of fetal trophoblast into the spiral arteries in the maternal decidual tissue during the early stages of placentation. Inadequate … Continue reading
