Previous studies established that in the rat, the uterus can accept a developing blastocyst for implantation only during a limited period of time on day 5 of gestation, termed the receptive phase. Our previous studies showed that the expression of calcitonin, a peptide hormone that regulates calcium homeostasis, is induced in rat uterus between days 3-5 of gestation and is switched off once the implantation process has progressed to day 6. In the present study, we analyze in detail how the… CONTINUE READING
