Abstract

Epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) endows cells with migratory and invasive properties, a prerequisite for the establishment of endometriotic lesions. However, the role EMT might play in the pathophysiology of endometriosis is still unknown. Therefore, we examined five recognized markers for EMT in endometrium and endometriosis: E-cadherin, N-cadherin… (More)
