A second experiment was performed where a single protein sample was serially diluted (90?0 mg) and HSP70 expression determined. As shown in Figure 8 (upper panel) there was a KS 176 site linear relationship between protein loading and signal intensity which levelled off after 70 mg. This confirmed that the original experiments performed herein (50 mg loaded) were performed with samples within the linear area.HSP70 is Upregulated in Labor and PreeclampsiaFigure 7.

Although originally thought to bind directly to the signalling receptors TLR2, TLR4, CD40, or CD91 it is now known that HSP 70 binds to scavenging receptors LOX-1, SREC-1, and FEEL-1. On binding 23977191 to the SIS 3 receptor it is thought that HSP 70 then signals to the TLR2 receptor which in turn signals MyD88 activation leading to the phosphorylation of ERK which can trigger the activation of an undetermined transcription factor that will bind the IL-10 gene promoter leading to IL-10 production [16]. Interestingly IL-10 can be pro-inflammatory at the end ofDiscussionThis study shows for the first time that HSP 70 is expressed in a spatial manner in the placenta with the highest expression being in the 2? cm (middle) area in both labour and non-labour groups. It also shows the importance of using a systematic method to sample the placenta. Most previous reports of placental protein expression do not take this into account.
