Murine trophoblast cells are not killed by tumor necrosis factor-α

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Purified midgestation murine trophoblast cannot be killed by a variety of cell-mediated effector mechanisms, with the exception of highly lytic effectors such as lymphokine-activated killer cells. We now report that this trophoblast population is also resistant to tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α.
