OBJECTIVES (1) to demonstrate specificity of integrin function in endometrial cell adhesion; (2) to investigate their regulation by tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha) and interleukin-1 (IL-1); and (3) to detect differences between cells from patients with and without endometriosis. STUDY DESIGN Endometrial cell cultures from ten patients with and 13 without endometriosis were tested for their expression of integrins alpha2beta1, alpha5beta1, alpha(v)beta3, and alpha4beta1 by… CONTINUE READING
