Syndecan 4, galectin 2, and death receptor 3 (DR3) as novel proteins in pathophysiology of preeclampsia

Karol Charkiewicz , Joanna Gościk , Grzegorz Raba , Piotr Laudanski


Introduction: Preeclampsia has the highest rate of obstetric morbidity and mortality. Methods: We recruited 21 women with preeclampsia and 27 women with uncomplicated pregnancies. We used a quantitative protein macroarray that allowed for analysis of 40 proteins. Results: We found a statistically significant increase in the concentration of DR3, LIF and a significant decrease of VEGF, PlGF, syndecan-4 and galectin-2, in the plasma of women with preeclampsia. Conclusions: There are no previous studies assessing syndecan 4, galectin 2, and DR3 concentrations in women with preeclampsia; Our results indicate these proteins are new factors that play important roles in the immunological pathomechanism of preeclampsia.
