High impact information on FLT1

  • Changes in gene expression were determined by RT-PCR and quantified by real-time PCR for urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA), collagenase-1 (MMP-1), membrane type-1 metalloproteinase (MT1-MMP), gelatinases A and B (MMP-2, MMP-9), tissue inhibitor-2 (TIMP-2), VEGF and its receptors, Flt-1 (VEGFR-1), KDR (VEGFR-2), and neuropilin-1 (NP-1) [1].
  • Our data lend support to the hypothesis that VEGF is essential for pregnancy establishment and that trophoblast-derived VEGF, acting via its specific receptors Flt-1 and KDR, is necessary for blastocyst implantation [2].
