Sex hormones are known to play an important role in the regulation of mucosal immunity in the female reproductive tract. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of estradiol (E2) on secretory component (SC) expression by epithelial cells in the rat uterus and to determine whether SC mRNA is present in uterine tissues and is under hormonal… CONTINUE READING
