Redistribution of aquaporins 1 and 5 in the rat uterus is dependent on progesterone: a study with light and electron microscopy.
During early pregnancy in the rat there is a dramatic reduction in luminal fluid which is associated with uterine receptivity for blastocyst implantation. This study investigates the presence and… Expand
Redistribution of aquaporins in uterine epithelial cells at the time of implantation in the rat.
The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of aquaporins 1, 4 and 5 in uterine epithelial cells during the early stages of pregnancy in the rat. Immunofluorescent and immunogold techniques… Expand
CALCIUM TRANSPORT ACROSS THE UTERINE EPITHELIUM OF PREGNANT LIZARDS
ABSTRACT Calcium is a major requirement for developing embryos, but an insufficient amount is present in egg-yolk to sustain embryonic development in most reptiles. Consequently, the eggshell acts as… Expand
Interleukin-1 receptor antagonist prevents embryonic implantation by a direct effect on the endometrial epithelium.
OBJECTIVE To investigate the embryonic and/or endometrial molecular mechanisms underlying the antiimplantation effect of interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra). DESIGN Controlled experiment. … Expand
Alterations in tight junction molecules of uterine epithelial cells during early pregnancy in the rat.
Distribution patterns of the tight junction associated proteins ZO-1, claudin-1 and occludin were investigated in rat uterine epithelial cells during early pregnancy. Light microscopy and… Expand
Human growth hormone and interleukin-6 are upregulated in endometriosis and endometrioid adenocarcinoma.
In this retrospective and quantitated study on banked tissue we found that, compared to normal uterine epithelial cells, growth hormone (GH) is increased 3.4-fold in endometriosis and 3.8-fold in… Expand

Plasma membrane transformation: a common response of uterine epithelial cells during the peri‐implantation period
The plasma membrane of uterine epithelial cells and its changes during early pregnancy are reviewed. The review first examines morphological alterations in rats and mice and laboratory rodents and… Expand
