Based on morphology, it has been suggested that prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) accelerates the process of endometrial stromal cell differentiation to decidual cells in the rat. The present study investigated this possibility, using changes in uterine weight and in endometrial alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity as indicators of decidualization. Rats were ovariectomized and treated with one of two steroid protocols; the first was identical to that previously used for the study of morphology, the second… CONTINUE READING
