Increased uterine capillary permeability, which can be induced by both estrogen and relaxin, is required for endometrial growth and implantation. This effect is mediated in both cases by estrogen receptors (ERs), via stimulation of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression. The sites on the VEGF promoter through which induction occurs, however… CONTINUE READING
