Electron-Histochemical Location of Cathepsin D and Elastase in the Uterus

Abstract

Location of cathepsin D and elastase in rat uterus was studied by electron-histochemical method. Activities of both proteinases in the myometrium was detected in lysosomes of smooth-muscle cells, macrophages, and fibroblasts.
