OBJECTIVES The aims of the study were to investigate whether a nitric oxide-cyclic guanosine monophosphate relaxation pathway is present in the human uterus and whether it differentially inhibits contractility during pregnancy and labor. STUDY DESIGN Myometrial strips were obtained from pregnant women who were either in labor or not in labor and from nonpregnant women. Nitrites and cyclic guanosine monophosphate production by the tissues and contractile responses to nitric oxide modifiers… Expand
