The objectives of this study were to determine whether antiprogestin therapy or the infusion of human CG to mimic blastocyst transit in the baboon alters heparin-binding EGF-like growth factor expression during the window of implantation. During the menstrual cycle, heparin-binding EGF-like growth factor protein accumulation in the glandular epithelium was low in the proliferative phase and increased to maximal expression on d 5 and 10 postovulation. Stromal cells accumulated high levels of… CONTINUE READING
