Genetic studies undertaken in the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans have demonstrated the importance
of neuropeptidergic signalling in nematode physiology. Disruption of this signalling may have
deleterious phenotypic ...

Genes involved in invasion of trophoblast cells and angiogenesis are crucial in determining pregnancy outcome. We
therefore studied expression profiles of these genes in both fetal and maternal tissues to enhance our ...
Reproductive capacity, the key element for species
survival, depends on a complex organ network involving
the hypothalamus, pituitary, gonads, and internal and
external genitalia. This system is centrally controlled ...

The precise regulation of extravillous trophoblast invasion of the uterine wall is a key process in successful pregnancies.
Kisspeptin (KP) has been shown to inhibit cancer cell metastasis and placental trophoblast cell ...
