SUMMARY A previous immunophenotyping study in the fetal uterine cervix provided evidence for the existence of 2 subpopulations of reserve cells, one giving rise to glandular epithelium and the other to squamous epithelium (5). In this study, we investigated whether the adult uterine cervix also harbors different populations of reserve cells on the basis of their marker profile and distribution pattern. Sagittal sections from 10 normal uteri, comprising the region from ectocervix to lower… CONTINUE READING
