The significance of insulin, insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) and glucocorticoids to the early mammalian embryo is clear in that they are key regulators of both mitogenic and metabolic effects during development. In the present study, the temporal sequence of expression of the respective receptor proteins was investigated for the first time in the developing rat utero-embryonic unit between conception and day 12 of gestation using immunocytochemistry. Insulin, IGF-I and glucocorticoid… CONTINUE READING
