Research Summary

Research is focused on the role of the protein Placenta-specific Protein 1 (PLAC1) in both normal and pathologic phenomena spanning the range of Obstetrics and Gynecology from the development and maintenance of a healthy placenta to preeclampsia to gynecologic cancers. PLAC1 is normally expressed only in the placenta. Current projects have shown 1) that the PLAC1gene emerged in the genome of the earliest placental mammals 165 million years ago and has remained essentially unchanged since, 2) that PLAC1 expression is significantly lower in the placentas of women who develop preeclampsia than in the placentas of women who do not and that this difference is influenced by a hypoxia-mediated mechanism, 3) that PLAC1 is turned on in gynecologic cancers, is an indicator of poor outcomes and is significantly influenced by p53 mutation status.
