Leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) and macrophage colony stimulating factor (M-CSF), members of the group of hemopoietic cytokines, play a primary role in the control of embryo development and implantation and in the growth of the placenta in humans and mice. Gene expressions of LIF and M-CSF were investigated using quantitative RT-PCR in bovine endometrial tissues during early and mid-pregnancy (Days 16-17, 20-21, 30-36, 48-49 and 74-140) and during the estrous cycle (Days 13-14).
