The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

An ultrastructural study of implantation in the golden hamster. II. Trophoblastic invasion and removal of the uterine epithelium. (1/2169)

Sixty six implantation sites from 18 golden hamsters were examined with light and electron microscopy between 4 and 5 1/2 days of pregnancy (post-ovulation). At 4 days some blastocysts began to invade the uterine epithelium, with trophoblastic processes penetrating and engulfing portions of the uterine epithelium. The majority of epithelial cells appeared normal before invasion, although at two implantation sites three or four adjoining epithelial cells were necrotic before penetration by the trophoblast. In general the epithelial cells were degenerating at the time the trophoblast invaded the epithelium. Inclusions, representing portions of the engulfed epithelium, and varying in size and electron density, were present throughout the invading trophoblast cells at 4 1/2 and 5 days of pregnancy. At 5 1/2 days the uterine epithelium had disappeared and the embryo was now almost completely surrounded by blood lacunae.  (+info)

Molecular control of the implantation window. (2/2169)

Human endometrium is the end organ of the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis. Therefore, endometrium is susceptible to changes in the cases of infertility that originate from disturbances in the normal functioning of this axis. In addition, some cases of unexplained infertility may be due to altered endometrial function. This disturbed endometrial function may originate from lesions in the molecular repertoire that are crucial to implantation. Human endometrium becomes receptive to implantation by the blastocyst within a defined period during the menstrual cycle. The duration of this so-called 'endometrial receptivity' or 'implantation' period seems to span from few days after ovulation to several days prior to menstruation. Successful implantation results from a co-ordinated series of events that would allow establishment of a timely dialogue between a receptive endometrium and an intrusive blastocyst. The members of the molecular repertoire that make endometrium receptive to implantation are gradually being recognized. Among these are the cytokines, integrins, heat shock proteins, tastin and trophinin. In addition, the expression of a second set of genes including tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) and ebaf, may be the appropriate signal for the closure of the 'implantation window', for making the endometrium refractory to implantation and for preparing it for the menstrual shedding.  (+info)

Utero-ovarian interaction in the regulation of reproductive function. (3/2169)

The physiological regulation of fertile reproductive cycle in mammals depends on interactions between hypothalamus-pituitary, ovarian and uterine stimuli. Over the past 20 years, much has been learned about the interrelation between the affluent and effluent lymph and vascular drainage in and around both ovarian and uterine tissues. An essential feature in the regulation of the fertile cycle is the functional status of the ovary, particularly the corpus luteum. During the time of implantation and the early pregnancy, an active corpus luteum is essential. As human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) is important in the maintenance of the corpus luteum, we investigated if it was produced by the cyclic endometrium. Immunohistochemical and in-situ hybridization reactions were performed but neither identified the presence of HCG during the proliferative phase. Positive staining and beta-human chorionic gonadotrophin (beta-HCG) mRNA were observed during the secretory phase in the glandular cells of the endometrium. The results were confirmed by Western blotting of secretory phase endometrium extracts and assessment of the functional secretory capacity of primary endometrial cultures. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) investigations showed a positive result in the secretory phase. We postulate that, based on the very close morphological interrelation between the uterus and the ovary, the beta-HCG of the endometrium is the primary factor for the maintenance of the corpus luteum and early pregnancy.  (+info)

Role of proteases in implantation. (4/2169)

Implantation of the embryo into the endometrium is a critical step in the establishment of pregnancy and the failure of embryos to implant is a major limiting factor in the success of reproductive technologies. Furthermore, one or more of the molecules of importance at implantation could provide a suitable target for post-coital contraception. While there is considerable species variation in the extent to which the trophoblast invades the maternal endometrium and makes contact with the maternal blood supply, many of the molecular mechanisms are conserved among species. Three families of protease are involved in the matrix degradation required for implantation: the cysteine, serine and matrix metalloproteinases. Other proteases are required for the activation of regulatory molecules. Although trophoblast from all species appears to have a high invasive potential, this is limited by the presence of partner protease inhibitors, the presence of which provides restraint to this invasion. It is the balance between the proteases and their inhibitors at any focal point that determines the site and extent of trophoblast invasion. This review examines the literature regarding proteases and their inhibitors at early implantation sites across a range of species with very different forms of placentation and evaluates their common features and their dissimilarities.  (+info)

Expression of calcium binding protein D-9k messenger RNA in the mouse uterine endometrium during implantation. (5/2169)

To investigate the molecular mechanisms of implantation, we constructed a cDNA library of mouse uteri enriched with pregnancy-induced genes by subtractive hybridization and polymerase chain reaction (PCR). One of the isolated clones was the cDNA for the calcium binding protein D-9k (Cabp9k), which is considered to regulate intracytoplasmic concentration and transport of free calcium ions. Northern blot and in-situ hybridization analyses demonstrated that the Cabp9k mRNA was expressed in the endometrial epithelia, both luminal and glandular, in the uterus at the time of implantation. On pregnancy day 5 it was detected in the luminal, but not in the glandular, epithelia. In the oophorectomized adult mice, progesterone enhanced Cabp9k mRNA expression in the uterus, whereas oestrogen did not. Consistent with this, a nucleotide change was identified in the first intron of mouse Cabp9k gene corresponding to the oestrogen responsive element in the rat Cabp9k gene. Transfer of embryos into the uterine cavity of pseudopregnant mice reduced the expression of Cabp9k mRNA in the glandular epithelium, suggesting that Cabp9k mRNA expression is also regulated by embryonal signal(s). These findings demonstrated that Cabp9k mRNA is expressed in the endometrial epithelia during the implantation period under the control of progesterone and the presence of embryo, and suggest that CaBP9k plays a role in implantation by regulating the local calcium concentrations.  (+info)

Intraperitoneal insemination of the guinea pig with synchronized estrus induced by progesterone implant. (6/2169)

Female guinea pigs with synchronized ovulation by means of implantation of progesterone-filled tubing (P-tube) followed by a progesterone injection, were inseminated by intraperitoneal injection with sperm suspension. First, to obtain the optimum conditions for insemination, the females were inseminated singly over the range of 1-10 x 10(7) spermatozoa before and after the synchronized ovulation. The incidence of conception and implantation was 100% in the females given more than 5 x 10(7)/animal at 9:00 h on the 5th day after removal of the P-tube. Second, the reproductive ability of the inseminated females under this optimal condition was observed throughout the pregnancy to delivery. Inseminated females had a mean +/- S.D. gestation period of 68.7 +/- 0.5 days, a litter size of 2.8 +/- 0.6 pups and body weight of 110 +/- 14 g. These data were comparable to those of naturally-mated females. Our findings suggest that the artificial insemination by intraperitoneal injection in combination with the synchronized estrus technique is very useful for production control in a small colony of guinea pigs.  (+info)

The objective of this study was to follow changes in the activity of the small matrix metalloproteinase matrilysin (MMP-7) in the rat uterus during the oestrous cycle and embryo implantation. Matrilysin was extracted from rat uteri, partially purified and separated into active and latent forms. The two forms of the enzyme were quantified at all stages of the oestrous cycle and after oestradiol and progesterone treatment. The activity was also measured during the first 7 days of pregnancy. Both latent and active forms of MMP-7 reached a peak during the pro-oestrous stage of the cycle; the concentrations were three times higher than at dioestrus and metoestrus. In rats treated with 0.1 mg oestradiol at metoestrus, both latent and active forms of the enzyme increased by more than two-fold after 24 h. In rats treated at pro-oestrus with 0.4 mg progesterone, there was a 70% increase in latent MMP-7, but no change in the active form. The highest concentrations of MMP-7 were observed on the first day of pregnancy. Between days 3 and 7 of pregnancy, the concentrations were relatively constant and comparable to the low concentrations at dioestrus. Enzyme activities were not different at implantation sites compared with remote sites.  (+info)

Regulated expression of cadherin-11 in human extravillous cytotrophoblasts undergoing aggregation and fusion in response to transforming growth factor beta 1. (8/2169)

Transforming growth factor beta 1 is believed to be a key regulator of extravillous cytotrophoblast invasion during the first trimester of pregnancy. In addition, this growth factor has been shown to regulate cellular differentiation and fusion in cultured extravillous cytotrophoblasts. To date, the cellular mechanisms by which transforming growth factor beta 1 promotes these developmental processes remain poorly understood. Recent studies indicate that the expression of the novel cadherin subtype, known as cadherin-11, is associated with the terminal differentiation and fusion of villous cytotrophoblasts isolated from the human term placenta and human myoblasts in vitro. In this study, cadherin-11 mRNA and protein expression were examined in primary cultures of human extravillous cytotrophoblasts cultured in the presence of increasing concentrations of transforming growth factor beta 1 using northern and western blot analysis, respectively. Transforming growth factor beta 1 was shown to increase cadherin-11 mRNA and protein expression in these cultured extravillous cytotrophoblasts in a dose-dependent manner. Cadherin-11 was further localized to the large cellular aggregates and multinucleated cells that formed in response to increasing concentrations of transforming growth factor beta 1 using immunocytochemistry. Collectively, these observations suggest that the morphogenetic effects of transforming growth factor beta 1 on cultured extravillous cytotrophoblasts are mediated, at least in part, by an increase in cadherin-11 expression. This study not only adds to the understanding of the cellular mechanisms by which transforming growth factor beta 1 promotes trophoblast differentiation and fusion but provides useful insight into the cell biology of the cadherins.  (+info)

In the majority of cases when a fertility treatment cycle fails or when someone suffers a miscarriage the cause is embryo-related. However, should couples fail to achieve success repeatedly with good quality embryos (recurrent implantation failure - RIF) or suffer from recurrent miscarriage (RM) further investigation should be considered to minimize the physical and emotional burden and ensure there are no potentially treatable causes.

Although it has been reported that hypoxia inducible factor 2 α (Hif2a), a major transcriptional factor inducible by low oxygen tension, is expressed in the mouse uterus during embryo implantation, its role in pregnancy outcomes remains unclear. This study aimed to clarify functions of uterine HIF using transgenic mouse models. Mice with deletion of Hif2a in the whole uterus (Hif2a-uKO mice) showed infertility due to implantation failure. Supplementation with progesterone (P4) and leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) restored decidual growth arrest and aberrant position of implantation sites in Hif2a-uKO mice, respectively, but did not rescue pregnancy failure. Histological analyses in Hif2a-uKO mice revealed persistence of the intact luminal epithelium, which blocked direct contact between stroma and embryo, inactivation of PI3K-AKT pathway (embryonic survival signal), and failed embryo invasion. Mice with stromal deletion of Hif2a (Hif2a-sKO mice) showed infertility with impaired embryo invasion ...

A Novel Concept of Fundus-Ovary-Salpinx-Para-Aorta Implantation Promoting Unit during Human Embryo Implantation. By Hiroshi Fujiwara, Yoshihiko Araki, Shigeru Saito, Kazuhiko Imakawa, Satoru Kyo, Minoru Shigeta, Masahide Shiotani, Akihito Horie and Takahide Mori. Human embryo implantation is mainly regulated by the endocrine system. Since the ovary, fallopian tube, and fundus can directly communicate through the mesosalpinx and ovarian ligament, the local concentration of progesterone in the pathway of the developing embryo is considered to be higher than in systemic blood circulation. The immune system promotes embryo implantation by stimulating progesterone production of the ovary and by inducing endometrial differentiation. The recognition of the developing embryo in the fallopian tube by the immune system is achieved through the para-aortic lymph nodes. On the basis of the above evidence, the autologous immune cells activated in vitro were demonstrated to improve clinical pregnancy rates in ...

RESULTS: During the 426 cycles, clinical pregnancy rate was 49.77% and embryo implantation rate was 27.20%. Differences in estradiol and progesterone levels on the day of endometrial transformation and before transplantation between pregnant and non-pregnant groups were not statistically significant. Furthermore, embryo implantation rate and clinical pregnancy rate among different levels of estradiol patients was not statistical different. On the day before transplantation, serum estradiol level decreased in 98.36% of patients. Differences in implantation rate and clinical pregnancy rate among patients with different extents of decrease in estradiol and different progesterone levels on the day before transplantation were statistically significant ( ...
Uterine and Serum Glycodelin Concentration in Recurrent Implantation Failure Versus Normal Fertile Women on Implantation Window. Robabeh Taheripanah1 , Marzieh Zamaniyan2* , Shahrzad Akhoondzadeh1 , Anahita Taheripanah3 , Narges Malih4. Abstract Objectives: Glycodelin is a factor which regulates immunological activity and is required in implantation window. The present study was conducted to compare glycodelin concentrations in blood and uterine flushing samples from women with in vitro fertilization (IVF) failure and fertile controls. Materials and Methods: This was a prospective clinical trial including 20 women with IVF failure and 19 fertile participants. Both groups initially filled a special questionnaire including their demographic profile and prior failed IVF attempts. Then samples of uterine flushing and blood samples were taken to measure glycodelin concentrations. Results: There were significant differences between mean glycodelin concentrations in the case and control groups, both in ...

During the development of multicellular organisms, integrins act through integrin-associated molecules to regulate essential aspects of cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesion, cell polarity and cell survival. On p. 2913, Reinhard Fässler and co-authors report that the integrin-associated protein PINCH1 regulates all four of these processes during the peri-implantation stage of mouse development. PINCH1 interacts with integrin cytoplasmic tails at focal adhesions via integrin-linked kinase (ILK). The authors show that, like β1-integrin- and Ilk-deficient mice, mouse embryos carrying a disrupted PINCH1 gene arrest at the peri-implantation stage. To pinpoint this phenotype, the authors examined embryoid bodies (EBs), an experimental model for this stage of development. Although PINCH1-null EBs show many of the same defects as β1-integrin- and Ilk-mutant EBs (including abnormal epiblast polarity and detachment of cells from matrix), they also exhibit abnormal cell-cell adhesion and increased ...

Our lab is interested in the mechanisms of embryo-uterine interactions at the time of implantation and fetal-maternal interactions at the time of birth. During early pregnancy, a tightly regulated series of molecular signals coordinates uterine receptivity and activation of the developing embryo. In collaboration with other Vanderbilt investigators, we are examining the role of growth factors, cytokines and prostaglandins in the establishment of pregnancy. Genomic screens have also identified numerous factors that are upregulated at the time of implantation, but whose function in this process is unknown. Current research projects are aimed at resolving the contribution of these gene families to embryo implantation. We are also examining the role of prostaglandins in term and preterm birth. Prostaglandins are products of arachidonic acid metabolism with vasoactive and mitogenic properties, and are likely downstream mediators of growth factor signaling. Cyclooxygenase (COX) is the rate-limiting enzyme in

Many couples who explore embryo adoption as an alternative option for building their family have already been through plenty of heartaches when it comes to their fertility. Many have learned that they are infertile for one reason or the other, or they may have experienced miscarriages, or maybe experienced the pain of a failed traditional adoption. Whatever brings them to explore embryo adoption, they are understandably wary of another family building method that could break their hearts. The good news is that embryo adoption, while not guaranteed, offers a high rate of success.. When it comes to thawing frozen embryos which have been in cold storage, every clinic has its own rate of success. Most clinics experience a 50% to 75% success rate during the thawing process and see strong, healthy embryos that start dividing cells and are ready for implantation. For the frozen embryo transfer (FET), which is the process of transferring the thawed embryos to the mothers womb, the success rate is ...

One of the interventions which has been recently proposed to enhance endometrial receptivity is the technique called endometrial scratching. This is an extremely easy and inexpensive intervention , in which we injuring the uterine lining in a very controlled fashion. This might sound very counter-intuitive - why would one want to actually inflict damage on the endometrium ? Conceptually, this is like the old-fashioned D&C which gynecologists used to use in the past to treat unexplained infertility, but its much less invasive. Instead of scraping the uterine lining ( as we do in a D&C), in a scratch procedure we just introduce a file plastic catheter into the uterus, in order to remove a small strip of the uterine lining. ( The additional benefit this procedure offers is that it allows us to map the cervical canal , and since its very similar to a dummy embryo transfer, it makes the actual ET much easier ...
embryo hatching.. Standard IVF protocols include culturing of embryos within the laboratory for three days, followed by transfer of cleavage stage embryos (6 to 8 cells), on Day 3, to the uterine cavity. Following transfer, the embryos must continue to progress to the blastocyst stage, shed the ZP, and embed into the uterine wall. In 1989 Cohen and his co-investigators observed a higher implantation rate in patients undergoing IVF, who had the ZP of their embryos mechanically opened. They therefore hypothesized that artificially creating a gap in the ZP might serve to facilitate embryo hatching and implantation. Microscopic manipulation of the ZP, in order to augment hatching and implantation, subsequently became known as assisted hatching. Prospective randomized clinical studies have been performed in order to evaluate the effectiveness of assisted hatching. Several studies report a significant increase in embryo implantation and clinical pregnancy rates, in select groups of patients whose ...
But, regardless of how you feel about the womans choices, what do you think of the doctors choices?

While that last thought is true, the idea that only four were implanted and *all* four divided is just on the side of ludicrous. From what Ive been reading, the division itself is rare - but for this woman to have four divide, those are odds worth buying a lottery ticket for. ...

rat trophinin protein: required for early embryo implantation during development, expressed in the subventricular zone and rostral migratory stream of the adult brain, but not in the brain of embryos and early postnatal animals; may play role in adult neurogenesis
It is really amazing what our world has come to, and what we are able to do and what we will be able to do in the near future. Although all of this has also brought upon many ethical and religious concerns for many people, but especially us Catholics.. Regarding genetic modification, it has recently become possible to let embryos grow outside of the human body for up to seven days, by which time, only the most vigorous survive. This reduces the number of embryos implanted and increases the number of successful implantations, while also reducing the number of multiple pregnancies. Most embryos, conceived in in-vitro fertilization clinics eventually die. If they are not implanted, they are either donated for research, in which case they are killed, or they are kept in cold storage in very low temperatures after which most are disposed of, or eventually die.. Not infrequently, early in pregnancy, some of these embryos are killed by injection of potassium chloride into the embryos heart. This ...
I have seen a lot of advances in the field of IVF since I first started doing it almost 30 years ago. The art and science have improved immensely, but I have come to realise that IVF is not just a matter of eggs, sperm and embryos. It takes two factors for a successful pregnancy - healthy embryos and a healthy implantation - and adequate preparation of a couple ahead of treatment is vital in order to optimise the outcome.. Our integrated approach to IVF at the Zita West Fertility Clinic involves looking at every aspect of a couples lives, including preparation of the mind, body and spirit, stress levels and micronutrition, and diet is a huge element of that. It takes about three months for eggs and sperm to develop properly and ensuring that they develop under optimum conditions improves the quality of the eggs, the sperm and, subsequently, the embryos. Healthy eggs and sperm equate to healthy embryos.. One of the greatest obstacles to successful implantation of the embryos and the reason why ...

The purpose of this study was to compare laboratory and clinical outcomes of intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI) and conventional intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) in couples with repeated implantation failures. A total of 200 couples with at least two prior unsuccessful ICSI cycles were enrolled: 100 couples were submitted to IMSI and 100 were submitted to routine ICSI. For IMSI, spermatozoa were selected at 8400× magnification using an inverted microscope equipped with Nomarski (differential interference contrast) optics. For conventional ICSI, spermatozoa were selected at 400× magnification. Clinical outcomes were evaluated between the two groups. Study patients were comparable in age, number of treatment failures, aetiology of infertility, percentage of normal form assessed by MSOME (motile sperm organelle morphology examination), semen parameters, total number of oocytes collected, number of mature oocytes collected, total number of embryos transferred and

The embryo implantation rate in assisted reproduction procedures is 20%, which leads to a low clinical pregnancy rate (35%), and even lower live birth rate (25%), per cycle started. Low embryo quality, poor endometrial receptivity, difficulties during the blastocyst hatching process are frequently denoted as the main reasons for the low implantation rate in humans.. The artificial rupture or thinning of the zona pellucida before embryo transfer-assisted hatching (AH)-has been proposed to foster spontaneous hatching and improve embryo implantation rates. Despite great effort, the clinical relevance of AH remains controversial and elusive.. There is a great importance of AH during frozen embryo cycles. Due to previous studies there is no precise answer about the value of AH performed on cryopreserved-thawed embryos. As far as is known, there is no clinical data to indicate the effects of AH on vitrified-warmed embryo transfer.. The objective of this prospective study is to assess the possible ...
The endometrium undergoes extensive changes to prepare for embryo implantation and microRNAs (miRNAs) have been described as playing a significant role in the regulation of endometrial receptivity. However, there is no consensus about the miRNAs involved in mid-secretory endometrial functions. We analysed the complete endometrial miRNome from early secretory (pre-receptive) and mid-secretory (receptive) phases from fertile women and from patients with recurrent implantation failure (RIF) to reveal differentially expressed (DE) miRNAs in the mid-secretory endometrium. Furthermore, we investigated whether the overall changes during early to mid-secretory phase transition and with RIF condition could be reflected in blood miRNA profiles. In total, 116 endometrial and 114 matched blood samples collected from two different population cohorts were subjected to small RNA sequencing. Among fertile women, 91 DE miRNAs were identified in the mid-secretory vs. early secretory endometrium, while no ...
Mediators of Inflammation is a peer-reviewed, Open Access journal that publishes original research and review articles on all types of inflammatory mediators, including cytokines, histamine, bradykinin, prostaglandins, leukotrienes, PAF, biological response modifiers and the family of cell adhesion-promoting molecules.
RESULTS: In this study, we have applied a genome-wide transcript-level changes approach using oligo microarrays representing 37,600 genes to define the transcriptomic profile of RIF patients in comparison to fertile controls.The differentially-expressed genes (DEGs) that met the criteria , log2(Fold Change) , (LFC)≥1 and adjusted p-value≤0.05 were accepted as statistically significant DEGs. The resulting 641 DEGs that met the criteria were then used for further selection with a feature selection wrapper algorithm that helps in identifying aspects the most relevant to the distinction between patients and controls. Feature selection was performed 100 times and DEGs that were chosen in all runs were accepted to be relevant DEGs. Functional enrichment analysis was carried out with 93 DEGs that were accepted as relevant. The BIOCARTA pathway RAC1 cell motility signaling pathway as well as related pathways were found to be enriched ...

I have read that implantation failure is more common in women with endometriosis, but I am unclear
Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) injections can enhance embryo implantation before the embryo is transferred into the uterus. Hcg booster shot after embryo transfer is not necessary because HCG shots before embryo transfer are adequate. Progesterone is often given after embryo transfer to support and sustain a pregnancy. Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) injections are mainly given in women who undergo in-vitro fertilization (IVF) procedure. Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone used widely in assisted reproductive treatments (ART) to induce ovulation. Assisted reproductive treatments are ways or methods to treat infertility and to make it possible for a couple to conceive. The definition of infertility is when a couple is unable to conceive despite regular and unprotected sexual intercourse for a one-year duration.. Infertility is a common condition. In the United States, 15% of couples are unable to conceive due to infertility. Infertility can affect the male partner, the female ...
Using single-cell sequencing and an in vitro culture system, researchers followed transcriptomic and epigenomic features over time in three main embryonic cell lineages.
The molecular regulation of mammalian peri-implantation development is complex and difficult to study in vivo. We successfully cultured hamster blastocysts through hatching and peri-attachment stages, using a chemically defined medium, HECM-2h. Using this system, we showed that a species-specific, embryonic cysteine-like protease is involved in blastocyst hatching and that the process is modulated by growth factors. In particular, heparin binding-epidermal growth factor (HB-EGF) or leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) enhance blastocyst hatching, and the former also improves attachment and trophoblast outgrowth. We observed interesting changing patterns of expression of mRNA and/or immunoreactive protein for EGF, HB-EGF, LIF and transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) in the embryo and/or endometrial tissue, during peri-implantation development. Together, it appears that hamster blastocyst hatching, attachment and trophoblast outgrowth are regulated by autocrine and/or paracrine growth factors, ...

PY - 1999. Y1 - 1999. N2 - Blastocyst implantation in the baboon usually occurs between 8 and 10 days post ovulation. Changes that occur within this window of receptivity and immediately following implantation can be divided into three distinct phases. The first phase, regulated by estrogen and progesterone, is characterized primarily by changes in both the luminal and glandular epithelial cells in preparation for blastocyst apposition and attachment. The second phase is the further modulation of these steroid induced changes in both epithelial and stromal cells by embryonic signals. The final phase is associated with trophoblast invasion and the remodeling of the endometrial stromal compartment. During the initial phase, the actions of estrogen and progesterone are dependent on the presence of specific ...
A team of researchers affiliated with multiple institutions in China has used single-cell sequencing to learn more about the human embryo during implantation in the uterus. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the group describes sequencing thousands of human embryo cells from before, during and after implantation, and what they learned from it.. To learn more about what happens during the implantation process, the researchers fertilized 65 human eggs and allowed them to grow in an in vitro culture system. This allowed them to study thousands of cells before, during and after they started the implantation process.. The researchers suggest their work created a path towards better understanding the underlying basis of an array of pregnancy disorders, including recurrent implantation failure, unexplained sporadic and recurrent pregnancy loss and diseases of abnormal placentation.. ...

A sequential study was made of non-delayed and of experimentally delayed rat blastocysts. Alterations in shape, axis lengths and area of non-delayed blastocysts first appeared on the afternoon of Day 5 of pregnancy. Similar changes were observed in delayed blastocysts beginning 12 hr after the simultaneous administration of oestrone and progesterone. In both cases implantation occurred within the subsequent 24 hr. In contrast, delayed blastocysts maintained only with progesterone were markedly larger than normal but failed to demonstrate typical pre-implantation changes or to implant. Therefore it was concluded that changes necessary for and indicative of impending implantation are induced by the synergistic action of oestrone and progesterone on the blastocyst.. Blastocysts from non-delayed and delayed, oestrone-treated animals were consistently free of their zonae pellucidae at least 18 hr prior to implantation-6 hr after pre-implantation changes were initially noted. Progesterone, although it ...

The Endometrial Receptivity Array (ERA) test has been found to be very accurate in determining the implantation window so it reduces the chances of IVF failure.
Evidence from an abundant number of studies suggests that human female reproductive functions have become impaired over the past half century and that there might be a relationship between endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and reduced fertility. It is, however, not known by what mechanisms EDCs affect different reproductive functions such as endometrial receptivity, embryo implantation and placentation.. The endometrium is continuously changing its morphological and functional properties, responding to cyclic changes of oestrogen and progesterone levels during the menstrual cycle. These changes include monthly preparation for embryo implantation through changed endometrial angiogenic activity and consequent changes in endometrial vasculature.. Use of primary human endometrial endothelial cells (HEECs) in this work was evaluated as a possible screening tool for effects caused by EDCs on human endometrial vasculature and subsequently on various endometrial functions.. In this study HEEC and ...
The mural trophectoderm is the region of the trophoblast that corresponds to the area of the embryonic sphere opposite and farthest from the inner cell mass.

Dr. Carolyn Givens for InfertilityDoctor.com, tells us that one protein produced by the endometrium during the implantation window that has some evidence for a scientific basis for a role in implantation is the cell-to-cell adhesion molecule known as beta-3 integrin. Integrins are a class of cell surface proteins that appear to act in all types of cell-to-cell recognition and adhesion processes. The beta-3 class of these proteins has been shown to be produced in response to progesterone in the endometrium and are purported to be one of the key proteins for adhesion of embryos to the endometrium. Failure to express this protein appropriately has been theorized to be a cause of unexplained implantation failure(1). To simplify, beta-3 integrin is the glue that binds the embryo to the uterine wall for successful implantation in the endometrium (uterine lining). Without this glue, the embryo will not attach properly and could result in miscarriages. ...

The human blastocyst at the feto-maternal microenvironment. Signalling and implantation system. Reproduced with permission. (12) The interleukin system is an indispensable component of pre-implantation embryo/endometrial communication. Inappropriate levels of female hormones or the ratio between the two has been shown to have a detrimental affect upon this implantation factor at the critical stage of alignment of the human embryo with the receptive cells of the endometrium prior to implantation, a docking style operation known as apposition.(13) As previously discussed, the Yuzpe method obviously meets the criteria of inappropriate levels. Sequentially associated with embryo/maternal cell-talk is the requirement for holding structures to be adequately present on the surface of the endometrium. These structures will maintain proper embryo/endometrial cellular contact whilst the embryo completes the implantation process. This life sustaining attachment/implantation process is, in part, ...

Expression of uterine receptivity molecules i.e. αvβ3 integrin, E-cadherin and mucin-1 could be affected by testosterone. The objective of this study was to investigate effect of testosterone on expression of these molecules during early pregnancy. 30 ovariectomised female Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into 5 groups that consisted of vehicle control, rats received eight days sex-steroid replacement regime (intended to mimic the hormonal changes in early pregnancy) and three groups of rats given testosterone (1 mg/kg/day) subcutaneously with or without flutamide or finasteride between day 6 and 8 representing the period of uterine receptivity. At the end of the treatment, rats were sacrificed and uteri were removed. Expression and distribution of αvβ3 integrin, E-cadherin and mucin-1 were examined by immunoflourescence and levels of messenger RNA (mRNAs) were evaluated by real-time PCR. Expression of ...

Male mice, heterozygous for the T26H reciprocal translocation, were mated to normal females. A systematic histological study at day 6 and day 8 of pregnancy, covering altogether 303 implantation chambers, yielded the following results: the average number of decidual reactions per female was 8·91, the average number of morphologically normal embryos atday 6 was 4·61 and at day 8, 4·25. No significant embryonic loss occurred between day 8 and the end of pregnancy. Most (89·0 %) of the embryonic loss due to genetically unbalanced (deficiencies combined with duplications) progeny occurs between the moment of the induction of a decidual reaction and day 6, i.e. in ±1·5 days. When the genetically unbalanced embryos were grouped in three classes according to the size of their deficiencies, the number sand types of the aberrant histological pictures found could be reconciled with the expectations of the three classes, based on cytological analysis. According to this, embryos with the smallest ...
Although a number of theories have been proposed in the development of endometriosis, the exact pathophysiology is still to be determined. The reduced conception rate in women with endometriosis may be explained by either decreased egg reserve resulting in chromosomally abnormal embryos or one of the following additional factors.
No adverse effect of treatment was evident in pregnancy rate data. At the high-dose level, mean body weights were significantly lower than control. In the mid-dose and high group, mean food consumption was significantly lower than control. At the mid-dose level, the incidence of females with areas of alopecia was notably increased. At the high-dose level, the incidence of females with staining of the fur in the ano-genital area and/ or soft stool was increased during the treatment interval of gestation. Additionally, several high-dose females were noted early in gestation (Day 9) as emaciated with red material about the snout. No adverse effect of treatment at the low- or mid-dose level was evident from uterine implantation data. An increase in both the mean number of resorption sites and the mean ratio of resorptions to implants was seen at the high-dose level, however it was not clear if the increase represents an adverse effect of treatment. No increase in the incidence of malformations was ...

Doctors give trusted, helpful answers on causes, diagnosis, symptoms, treatment, and more: Dr. Livingston on I had my period 2 weeks ago and im spotting: While follicle formation, ovulation, fertilization, zygote formation, implantation are all steps of pregnancy; many more complexities remain: placenta formation, extremely complex cell replication, selective genetic reading, cell|tissue|organ differentiation, etc. Etc. Steps remain. Well over 1/3 of implantation never mature to a healthy live birth. The amazing issue is the percentage which work.
Dear Shining_Star,. As you said, the embryo youve been transferred is of optimal quality. Besides, taking into account that it comes from a healthy donor and the results of the seminogram show normal semen results, your case can be considered to be of good prognosis.. Hormone fertility drugs are indicated to improve chances of embryo implantation, since thanks to them your endometrium gets ready for it. The aim is to achieve the adequate endometrial thickness, which will make it more receptive for implantation. Progesterone is one of such hormone medications, usually indicated for IVF embryo transfer, either in cases where donor eggs are used and when own eggs are used as well.. Nevertheless, progesterone has some side effects, especially if taken by mouth. Bear in mind that symptoms are to be experienced either if oral or vaginal progesterone is taken, but if you move from vaginal route to oral route, symptoms such as somnolence, dizziness and nausea are rather frequent. This is the reason why ...
Vistahermosa Reproduction Unit.. Several aspects have to be evaluated so that the strategy to be followed is successful: number of embryos obtained, embryo quality grade, age of the patient, associated pathologies, complementary techniques and if it is an IVF or ovodonation cycle.. But why on day 3 or day 5? Dr. Avilés explains that these are the days in which the quality of the embryos can be more easily analyzed according to morphological parameters: shape, size, number of cells, fragments or vacuoles of the cells; and kinetic parameters: times of cell division. Also, depending on the implantation potential, the selection of the embryos includes 4 grades, from A to D, with A being very high and D being the lowest.. Transferring on day 3 or on day 5 will depend fundamentally on the number of embryos we have, especially because the fact that an embryo does not reach day 5 in the laboratory does not mean that it does not evolve in the uterus, which is its natural environment, says ...

Immunostaining for Bax/Bcl2 Bax reveals weak expression in the developing decidua, but not in the uterine epithelium of the implantation chamber on 4.5 dpc (a).
Fans know General Hospital loves wacky storylines, and medical chimerism quite easily explains how Charlotte could have DNA of Valentin, Lulu, and Dante but only be the biological child of Lulu and Dante. We know that Claudette was Valentins girlfriend and partner in crime even before she served as the embryo surrogate. Before embryo implantation, fertility treatments can increase odds of success.. With Claudette and Valentin in a sexual relationship, he could have fertilized an egg of Claudettes just as the doctor implanted Lulu and Dantes embryo in her womb. With two embryos, one can be absorbed by the other, resulting in just one baby being born but containing the DNA of the other embryo that didnt survive. In most cases of medical chimerism, it is one twin that absorbs the other, but it could happen with two unrelated embryos in the same uterus.. Valentin and Claudettes embryo could have been absorbed by Dante and Lulus resulting in multiple strains of DNA.. ...

Regarding other long-standing topics, such as the suitability of allogenic versus autologous sources, Dr Annarosa Leri commented on the potential loss of functionality of stem cells associated with aging and comorbidities, which could hamper the benefits of autologous treatments and could explain the large variability in patient outcomes. Another recurrent proposal to increase stem cell efficacy is the repetitive delivery of cells. Just as only continued cardiovascular drug treatments can produce clinical benefits, maybe only repeated implantation of cells would allow reproducible positive clinical effects in all patients. In this sense, Dr Birgit Assmus presented the results of the REPEAT clinical trial, whose aim is to compare single with repeated intracoronary infusions of autologous BM-MNC (NCT01693042) in 300 patients. REPEAT positive results at 2-year follow-up provide the rationale for repeated intracoronary applications of such regenerative products.. Moving into the latest achievements ...
Phase 18: There are two of these glands, one situated in the neck and the other within the chest cavity. These glands are vitally important and represent the future of the Chapter, as the only way new gene-seed can be produced is by reproducing it within the bodies of the Marines themselves. This is the implants only purpose. The glands absorb genetic material from the other implanted organs. When they have matured each gland will have developed a single gene-seed corresponding to each of the zygotes which have been implanted into the Marine. These take time (5 years in the first case, 10 in the latter)[1][2a][3] to mature into gene-seed. The gene-seed can then be extracted and used to create more Space Marines. Thanks to the superior implantation process and genetic stability of Primaris Space Marines, the Imperium has recently been able to harvest gene-seed at a rate previously unseen.[8] ...

Development of the breasts during the prenatal stage of life is independent of biological sex and sex hormones.[20] During embryonic development, the breast buds, in which networks of tubules are formed, are generated from the ectoderm.[21] These rudimentary tubules will eventually become the matured lactiferous (milk) ducts, which connect the lobules (milk "containers") of the breast, grape-like clusters of alveoli, to the nipples.[22] Until puberty, the tubule networks of the breast buds remain rudimentary and quiescent,[1] and the male and female breast do not show any differences.[20] During puberty in females, estrogen, in conjunction with GH/IGF-1, through activation of ERα specifically (and notably not ERβ or GPER),[23][24] causes growth of and transformation of the tubules into the matured ductal system of the breasts.[20][21][25] Under the influence of estrogen, the ducts sprout and elongate, and terminal end buds (TEBs), bulbous structures at the tips of the ducts, penetrate into the ...
