Endometrial epithelial cells play a critical role in mediating inflammatory mechanisms key to bacterial clearance and tissue re-modelling postpartum. This study characterised innate immune gene expression by bovine endometrial epithelial cells from three animals in response to Escherichia coli, a common cause of bovine uterine disease. Expression of key innate immune genes, encoding Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4), the transcription factor NFkB1, the chemokine interleukin 8 (IL8), inflammatory… CONTINUE READING
