In pregnant uterus, IL-18 is mainly secreted by NK cells and appears essential for normalcy of implantation sites as well as maintenance of decidual cell
viability with the findings of Ashkar et al.
Progesterone and estrogen regulation of rat decidual cell
expression of proliferating cell nuclear antigen.
27] Moreover, another effector, YAP, was upregulated in human decidual cells
and was found to potentially influence the decidualization of endometrial stromal cells.
The mechanical action of the Foley catheter strips the fetal membranes from the lower uterine segment and causes rupture of lysosomes in the decidual cells
, part of which is phospholipase A.
After the embryo adhered to the LE in normal pregnancy, the uterine stromal cells adjacent to the embryo immediately differentiate to decidual cells
(termed as deciduaslization) and synthesize E2 at the site of implantation (27).
were degenerated with extensive foci of necrosis and fibrinoid deposition.
Intermediate trophoblasts and the decidual cells
which give a positive nuclear stain serve as internal control.
It is highly expressed in dendritic cells on mucosal tissue and has also been found to be highly expressed in placental tissue on maternal decidual cells
and fetal Hofbauer cells.
By this time, AHR was already clearly expressed in all three embryonic germ layers (ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm) and in the surrounding decidual cells
contain abundant "glassy" eosinophilic cytoplasm, with centrally placed nuclei lacking atypia (Figure 7, A).
These cells are transformed into decidual cells
, which form the maternal portion of the placenta in these species.
In the maternal-fetal interphase; decidual cells
showing apopitotic changes were common after the application of Aloe barbadensis (Figs.
