PLACENTA

The placenta is a specialized support organ that allows the growth and development of the fetus. In intrauterine development, the placenta fulfills fundamental functions of protection, anchoring and transport between the maternal and fetal circulation. Genetic, environmental, transcriptional and epigenetic factors actively participate in the formation of this interface. Our research group is interested in evaluating the epigenetic effects of cigarette smoke exposure in placentas of pregnant women. Specifically analyzing alterations in methylation levels of some transcription factors involved in the response to allergy.
