Epithelial cell integrity at mucosal surfaces provides an effective physical barrier against potential pathogens that threaten reproductive health. We have used polarized epithelial cells from adult mouse uteri to investigate the roles of TNFalpha and TGFbeta, which are produced by uterine epithelial and stromal cells, and hepatocyte growth factor (HGF… CONTINUE READING
