Immunohistochemical analysis of connexins 26, 32 and 43 in rat uterus during late pregnancy: lack of connexin 26 in the myometrium

Abstract

The spatial and temporal patterns of expression of connexin 26, connexin 32 and connexin 43 were investigated in rat uterus at days 17, 19 and 22 of pregnancy and during delivery (23 days) by immunocytochemistry, Gap junctions, which are essential for the development of labour, are known to undergo rapid increase in the rat myometrium at the end of… (More)
