    Glial cells missing (GCM) proteins are a novel family of zinc-containing transcription factors. Human GCMa/1 is primarily expressed in placental trophoblast cells and regulates SYNCYTIN gene expression, which mediates fusion of cytotrophoblasts to form the syncytiotrophoblast layer of the human...

    RNA sequencing has become an important method to perform hypothesis-free characterization of global gene expression. One of the limitations of RNA sequencing is that most sequence reads represent highly expressed transcripts, whereas low level transcripts are challenging to detect. To combine...

    Human trophoblast expresses two fusogenic retroviral envelope proteins, the widely studied syncytin 1, encoded by HERV-W and the recently characterized syncytin 2 encoded by HERV-FRD. Here we studied syncytin 2 in normal and Trisomy 21-affected placenta associated with abnormal trophoblast...

    Background: Inhibins and activins are important regulators of the female reproductive system. Recently, a novel inhibin subunit, named betaE, has been identified and shown to be expressed in several human tissues. However, only limited data on the expression of this novel inhibin-betaE subunit...
