Oestrogen plays an essential role in regulating growth and differentiation in the human endometrium which undergoes dynamic morphological and functional changes during the menstrual cycle in preparation for implantation. In this tissue, it has been suggested that intracellular calcium could be a key signal in transducing early responses to steroid hormones. Here, we have investigated the rapid effects of 17beta-oestradiol on [Ca2+]i in a human endometrial cell line (RL95-2). Using confocal… CONTINUE READING
