The uterus is an essential organ for reproduction in mammals. Despite the importance of the uterus for the fertility and health of women and their offspring, relatively little is known about the hormonal, cellular, and molecular mechanisms that regulate development of the uterus in either the fetus or neonate. Disruption of uterine development in the fetus and neonate by genetic defects or exposure to endocrine disruptors can program the function of the uterus in the adult and lead to… CONTINUE READING
