Table 1 Candidate genes selected for analysis on the basis of their increased expression on Day 13 as compared to Day 7 of the estrous cycle from reference[42] and RNA sequencing (RNA-SEQ) data of pregnant and cyclic endometria on Day 13 from reference[41] for the most abundant genes expressed in the endometria, but not detected in the conceptus

From: Alterations in expression of endometrial genes coding for proteins secreted into the uterine lumen during conceptus elongation in cattle
