The endometrium expresses estrogen (ER) and progesterone receptors (PR), which are involved in autocrine and paracrine regulation processes in response to estrogen and progesterone. The aim of the present study was to evaluate immunohistochemical distribution patterns of estrogen receptor alpha (ER alpha), estrogen receptor beta (ER beta) and PR in normal human endometrial tissue with the use of monoclonal antibodies. Human endometria were obtained from 17 premenopausal patients undergoing… CONTINUE READING
