It is considered that steroid hormones, the concentrations of which vary during pregnancy, play an important role in the initiation of delivery. In the present study, we measured intracellular Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) change following oxytocin stimulation in cultured human myometrial cells with fura-2, a fluorescent Ca2+ indicator. We also studied the effect of the steroid hormones on changes in [Ca2+]i due to oxytocin stimulation. When the [Ca2+]i change due to 10(-6) M oxytocin reached 100%, the… CONTINUE READING
