Interleukin 1 (IL-1), IL-6 and tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) are expressed in the mouse uterus on days 1-3 of pregnancy. Cytokine production is temporally associated with the post-mating intrauterine acute inflammatory response. In this study, IL-1, IL-6 and TNF-alpha were detected in the uterus of pregnant mice from day 3 to day 9, using northern blotting, bioassays and immunocytochemistry. IL-1 bioactivity increased from a low concentration on day 3 to a peak between days 4 and 5… CONTINUE READING
