Involvement of membrane GRP78 in trophoblastic cell fusion

Published inPloS one, vol. 7, no. 8, e40596
Publication date2012

Glucose-regulated protein 78 (GRP78) is highly expressed in first trimester cytrophoblastic cells (CTBs), especially in syncytiotrophoblast (STB). However, the role of GRP78 in these cells has never been investigated.
