This study was designed to investigate the role of arginase in regulating myometrial contractions during gestation in the rat. Arginase activity in the myometrium was significantly decreased during the 7th-21st day of gestation, with the lowest value on the 14th day. However, the enzyme activity became significantly higher at term gestation (22nd day) than that in the non-pregnant myometrium. Arginase I protein was undetectable in the non-pregnant myometrium, at 7th and 14th day of gestation… CONTINUE READING

Both basal and stimulated guanylyl cyclase activities were enhanced at mid- and reduced at term gestation and after delivery , thereby partly increasing cyclic GMP production at mid- and partly decreasing the nucleotide production at term gestation and after delivery .
