Brain activation and sexual arousal in healthy, heterosexual males.
Despite the brain's central role in sexual function, little is known about relationships between brain activation and sexual response. In this study, we employed functional MRI (fMRI) to examineExpand

Matrix metalloproteinase-2, membranous type 1 matrix metalloproteinase, and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-2 expression in ectopic and eutopic endometrium.
OBJECTIVE To investigate expression of matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2), membranous type 1 matrix metalloproteinase (MT1-MMP), and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-2 (TIMP-2) in ectopic andExpand

Repetitive DNA sequences in Drosophila
The satellite DNAs of Drosophila melanogaster and D. virilis have been examined by isopycnic centrifugation, thermal denaturation, and in situ molecular hybridization. The satellites melt over aExpand

Embryonic implantation in mice is blocked by interleukin-1 receptor antagonist.
We have investigated the relevance of interleukin-1 receptor type I (IL-1R tI) in the implantation process in vivo in a murine model. Indirect immunofluorescence experiments demonstrate that IL-1R tIExpand

Regulation of embryonic implantation.
The preimplantation embryo produces several factors during its development to signal its presence to the maternal organism. This paper will focus on the role of two distinctive cytokine and growthExpand

Cytokine-mediated regulation of 92-kilodalton type IV collagenase, tissue inhibitor or metalloproteinase-1 (TIMP-1), and TIMP-3 messenger ribonucleic acid expression in human endometrial stromal
Interleukin-1 (IL-1) is expressed in human endometrium and has been shown to play an integral role in local cellular interactions during implantation. In addition, the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)Expand

Interleukin-1 system in the materno-trophoblast unit in human implantation: immunohistochemical evidence for autocrine/paracrine function.
Interleukin-1 receptor type I, IL-1 beta, IL-1 receptor antagonist, and human macrophages were immunohistochemically localized in the villous trophoblast, maternal-trophoblast interphase, andExpand
