Cell proliferation and differentiation in the rodent uterus are probably controlled by the interaction of female sex steroids with polypeptide growth factors. Uterine basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) mRNA was measured by RNase protection during the time (days 2-4) of endometrial cell proliferation in the pregnant rat. bFGF transcripts were detected at each of the 3 days of pregnancy examined. To investigate the influence of oestrogen and progesterone on bFGF mRNA accumulation… CONTINUE READING
