The central hypothesis of this study was that matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) would be enhanced following murine chlamydial infection and that their expression would vary in mouse strains that differ in their susceptibility to chronic chlamydia-induced disease. To address this hypothesis, female C3H/HeN and C57BL/6 mice were infected intravaginally with Chlamydia muridarum. Uterine and oviduct tissues were assessed for transcription of MMP genes and their tissue inhibitors. An increased… CONTINUE READING
