Expression of Toll-like receptors 2, 4 and 6 in equine endometrial epithelial cells: A comparative in situ and in vitro study.

Abstract

Endometrial epithelial cells form a luminal barrier and are exposed to pathogens and non-infectious antigens. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) mediate pathogen defenses and tissue homeostasis, but are also involved in the pathogenesis of inflammatory and fibrosing alterations. Endometrial diseases are important causes of subfertility in mares. The pathogenesis of… (More)
