- Endometrial glands as a source of nutrients, growth factors and cytokines during the first trimester of human pregnancy: a morphological and immunohistochemical studyJoanne Hempstock
Department of Anatomy, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
Reprod Biol Endocrinol 2:58. 2004..The aim was to determine the activity of the glands throughout the first trimester, and to identify components of the secretions...
- Gabor Than Award Lecture 2008: pre-eclampsia - from placental oxidative stress to maternal endothelial dysfunctionT Cindrova-Davies
Centre for Trophoblast Research, Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB2 3EG, UK
Placenta 30:S55-65. 2009..Addition of anti-oxidants or blocking the stress or inflammatory pathways in vitro attenuates these effects and opens possibilities for therapeutic intervention...
- Oxidative stress and the induction of cyclooxygenase enzymes and apoptosis in the murine placentaC Burdon
Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB2 3DY, UK
Placenta 28:724-33. 2007..Generation of oxidative stress may also play a role in influencing the growth trajectory of the placenta, and its component cell types. The mouse may provide an experimental genetic model in which to investigate these phenomena...

- Evidence for transcriptional activity in the syncytiotrophoblast of the human placentaP M Ellery
Centre for Trophoblast Research, University of Cambridge, Downing Street, Cambridge CB2 3EG, UK
Placenta 30:329-34. 2009..Contrary to previous findings, these results confirm that a proportion of syncytiotrophoblast nuclei actively produce mRNA transcripts...
- Expression and immunolocalisation of the endocytic receptors megalin and cubilin in the human yolk sac and placenta across gestationK A Burke
Centre for Trophoblast Research, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
Placenta 34:1105-9. 2013..These results suggest megalin and cubilin may be important in human maternal-fetal transfer, and that they increase across gestation to facilitate this function. ..
