Prostaglandins (PGs) are important factors in the physiology of human parturition and the control of uterine contractility. We have characterized the expression of 15 genes from all stages of the PG(More)
RHO GTP-binding proteins are important regulators of actin-myosin interactions in uterine smooth muscle cells. Active (GTP-bound) RHOA binds to RHO-associated protein kinase (ROCK1), which inhibits(More)
Phosphoinositide hydrolysis is important in mediating the actions of oxytocin and prostaglandin (PG) F2 alpha on uterine contractions during labour. We have measured the effect of oxytocin, PGF2(More)
