calreticulin in human pregnancy & PE

Postby caryn » Wed Apr 23, 2008 09:18 pm

...there was a significant increase (approximately 50%) in calreticulin in plasma from pre-eclamptic women compared to controls. Calreticulin mRNA and protein expression in placenta were not changed between pre-eclampsia and control pregnancies. These novel results indicate that calreticulin is increased in peripheral maternal blood early in pregnancy and remains elevated throughout normal gestation and that there is a further increase in calreticulin in pre-eclampsia.
