To clarify whether apoptosis is involved in endometriosis, we obtained eutopic endometrial tissues along with endometriotic tissues from the uterus (adenomyosis) (n = 12) and from the ovary (n = 12) from patients undergoing gynaecological surgery. Apoptosis-induced DNA fragmentation was detected by the TdT-mediated dUTP-biotin nick-end labelling method, and immunostaining with a monoclonal antibody against the Fas, Le(y) or B-cell leukaemia/lymphoma-2 (bcl-2) was also performed using the same… CONTINUE READING
