Local intra-uterine Ang-(1–7) infusion attenuates PGE2 and 6-keto PGF1α in decidualized uterus of pseudopregnant rats

Abstract

BACKGROUND Cyclooxygenase (COX)-derived prostanoids (PGE2, PGI2) are important contributors to the process of decidualization. Previous studies showed the presence of Ang-(1-7) in the primary and secondary decidualized zones of the implantation site at early pregnancy. Decreased concentrations of Ang-(1-7) were found in the decidualized uterus compared to… (More)
