Abstract:
Elevated maternal levels of the neutral amino acid homocysteine (Hcy) during pregnancy are associated with various complications of pregnancy and adverse neonatal outcomes, suggesting placental transport of Hcy may influence fetal development. The primary aim of this study was to characterise Hcy transport across the microvillous plasma membrane (MVM) of the syncytiotrophoblast, the transporting epithelium of human placenta.
