Brain activation and sexual arousal in healthy, heterosexual males.
This study demonstrates the feasibility of examining brain activation/sexual response relationships in an fMRI environment and reveals a number of brain structures whose activation is time-locked to sexual arousal.
Matrix metalloproteinase-2, membranous type 1 matrix metalloproteinase, and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-2 expression in ectopic and eutopic endometrium.
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 and it is concluded that the majority of repetitive sequences in D.virilis andD.
Immunohistochemical localization of the interleukin-1 system in the mouse ovary during follicular growth, ovulation, and luteinization.
The morphological results support a possible autocrine-paracrine role of the mouse ovarian IL-1 system in ovulation and luteinization.

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)…

Genes involved in elastin metabolism were differentially expressed in vaginal tissue from women with SUI, suggesting thatElastin remodelling may be important in the molecular aetiology of SUI.
Quantitative gonadotropin-releasing hormone gene expression and immunohistochemical localization in human endometrium throughout the menstrual cycle.
GnRH immunostaining was localized in all major compartments, with the most intense staining during the luteal phase, suggesting that during reproductive life, endometrial GnRH may play a paracrine/autocrine role in the early stages of implantation by modulating embryonic trophoblastic secretion of hCG.
Phospholipase A2 and Cyclooxygenase Gene Expression in Human Preimplantation Embryos
PLA(2), COX-1, andCOX-2 are expressed during early human embryonic development and may contribute to the production of PGs such as PGE(2) in human embryogenesis.
