Abstract

The process of implantation has been looked upon as an adhesion phenomenon of the blastocyst cells over the endometrial lining, mediated by membrane surface components. Experiments were performed to probe accessible surface thiol groups in the endometrium at various stages of its receptivity. A transient and abrupt“thiol expression”was marked in coincidence with the time of implantation. It is plausible that the adhesion of blastocyst to the uterine epithelium may involve a disulphide bonding between the thiols present on the surface of interacting counterparts.
