Normal rat uterine stromal cells in continuous culture: characterization and progestin regulation of growth.
Stromal cells were isolated from rat uterus by sequential enzymatic digestion and density fractionation on Percoll gradient and subcultured by trypsinization. Two stable subcultures, named UII andExpand
Magnum morphogenesis during the natural development of the quail oviduct: analysis of egg white proteins and progesterone receptor concentration.
The histological development of the quail oviduct and the changes in concentrations of progesterone receptor, ovalbumin, conalbumin, ovomucoid and ovoglycocomponents are analyzed during the periodExpand
Prolactin up-regulates prostaglandin E2 production through increased expression of pancreatic-type phospholipase A2 (type I) and prostaglandin GH synthase 2 in uterine cells
Uterine stromal cells produce and release PGE2, both processes being regulated by hormonal factors. In this study, we examined the effect of PRL on the PGE2 production and release measured byExpand
Human melanoma cells inhibit the earliest differentiation steps of human Langerhans cell precursors but failed to affect the functional maturation of epidermal Langerhans cells
Tumour-derived factors suppress differentiation and function of in vitro generated DC. Here, we investigate the effect of two melanoma clones differing in their invasive and metastatic properties onExpand
Development of the oviduct in quail during sexual maturation in relation to plasma concentrations of oestradiol and progesterone.
The macromolecular content (DNA, soluble proteins and ovalbumin) of the magnum and the plasma concentrations of oestradiol and progesterone were studied during sexual development of the JapaneseExpand
Phospholipase A2 inhibitors regulate the proliferation of normal uterine cells.
The effects of inhibitors of phospholipase A2, cyclooxygenase, lipoxygenase and cytochrome P450 activity on the proliferation of normal rat uterine stromal cells (UIII) were studied. At non-cytotoxicExpand
Bis(monoacylglycerol) phosphate in rat uterine stromal cells: structural characterization and specific esterification of docosahexaenoic acid.
In rat uterine stromal cells (U(III) cells), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) was esterified extensively in alkenylacyl-glycerophosphoethanolamine and in an unknown phospholipid accounting for only 0.7% ofExpand
Mechanism of estrogen action: indirect effect of estradiol-17 beta on proliferation of quail oviduct cells.
Experimental data were collected to test whether the effect of estrogens required a direct action of the steroid on their target cells for induction of (i) cell multiplication and (ii)Expand
Docosahexaenoic acid is a potent inhibitor of rat uterine stromal cell proliferation.
The effect of different families of fatty acids on the proliferation of rat uterine stromal cells (UIII) was studied. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) exerted a strong and dose-dependent inhibitory effectExpand
