Leukocytes comprise approximately 30-40% of decidual stromal cells in early human pregnancy. The major leukocyte component is the uterine natural killer (uNK) cells. Despite over 20 years of research the functional role of these cells in situ remains unknown although they have been proposed to play roles in immunotolerance, regulation of trophoblast invasion and remodeling of the spiral arteries. Herein we review the functional roles of this important decidual cell type. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
