Protein Information
Name TRO
Synonyms KIAA1114, MAGED3
Function Could be involved with bystin and tastin in a cell adhesion molecule complex that mediates an initial attachment of the blastocyst to uterine epithelial cells at the time of the embryo implantation. Directly responsible for homophilic cell adhesion.
Tissue Location Strong expression at implantation sites. Found in the placenta from the sixth week of pregnancy. Was localized in the cytoplasm of the syncytiotrophoblast in the chorionic villi and in endometrial decidual cells at the uteroplacental interface After week 10, the level decreased and then disappeared from placental villi. Also found in macrophages

Trophinin, also known as TRO or MAGED3, is an apical cell adhesion molecule that is implicated in the initial attachment during the process of embryo implantation and functions by mediating cell adhesion between trophoblastic and endometrial epithelial cells (1,2). Trophinin is a membrane protein expressed in chorionic villi trophoblasts and in maternal endometrial epithelial cells in an implantation-dependent manner and interacts with Bystin and Tastin, facilitating cell adhesion and embryo implantation (3,4). The induction of Trophinin expression may be a useful method for improving implantation rates and can be a potential diagnostic factor and biomarker for human cancer (4,5).
