The enzyme complex 3b-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase/Δ(5)-Δ(4)-isomerase (3β-HSD) is involved in the biosynthesis of all classes of active steroids. The expression of 3β-HSD in human uterine endometrium during the menstrual cycle and decidua was examined in an effort to understand its role during ova implantation. 3β-HSD was weakly expressed in the glandular epithelium of the proliferative phase and moderately expressed in the glandular epithelium of secretory phase of the endometrium. In the… CONTINUE READING
