PLAC1 May play a role in placental development. Belongs to the PLAC1 family. Expressed in placenta. Localizes primarily to differentiated syncytiotrophoblast throughout gestation as well as to a small population of villous cytotrophoblasts. Also detected in maternal blood and rapidly disappears following delivery, but is not detected in other adult or fetal tissues examined. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
