The insulin-like growth factor (IGF) autocrine/paracrine system is believed to be involved in endometrial differentiation, but there is limited information on the specific cellular functions regulated by IGFs in uterine tissues and their regulation of IGF-binding proteins (IGFBPs). We have investigated the regulation by insulin, IGF-I, and IGF-II, of IGFBP(More)
We have measured the Raman spectra of polycrystalline MgB2 from 25 to 1200 cm(-1). A superconductivity-induced redistribution in the electronic Raman continuum was observed. Two pair-breaking peaks appear in the spectra, suggesting the presence of two superconducting gaps. The measured spectra were analyzed using a quasi-two-dimensional model in which two(More)
While chronic pain is a main symptom in endometriosis, the underlying mechanisms and effective therapy remain elusive. We developed an animal model enabling the exploration of ectopic endometrium as a source of endometriosis pain. Rats were surgically implanted with autologous uterus in the gastrocnemius muscle. Within two weeks, visual inspection revealed(More)
