Caveolae and caveolin-1 in human term villous trophoblast.

Abstract:

Caveolae are flask-shaped invaginations of the plasma membrane found in many cell types, particularly endothelium. A major structural component is the membrane protein caveolin-1 which associates with numerous signalling molecules, including endothelial nitric oxide (eNOS). Caveolin-1, which co-immunoprecipitates with eNOS in preparations from endothelial cells, regulates eNOS activity, holding it inactive. Controversy now exists regarding the presence of caveolae and caveolin-1 in trophoblas...
