      Secreted hormones

      • Hormone: relaxin-2 isoform 1

      • Hormone: VCAM1 soluble form

      • Hormone: PrRP31

        • PrRP gene expression was detected in both the placenta and decidua. [1]
        • These tissues expressed PrRP mRNA throughout pregnancy and the level of PrRP mRNA expression somewhat increased during midpregnancy. [1]
        • Placental and decidual cells also expressed PrRP mRNA, in vitro. [1]
