Parturition and recruitment of macrophages in cervix of mice lacking the prostaglandin F receptor.

Abstract

Parturition does not occur in transgenic mice lacking the prostaglandin F receptor (Ptgfr(-/-)) because luteolysis is forestalled and progesterone production persists. Ovariectomy of pregnant Ptgfr(-/-) mice leads to a decline in circulating progesterone and delivery of live pups. The objective of the present study was to test the hypothesis that… (More)
