The present study was designed to examine the pattern and cellular localization of 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11 beta-HSD1) gene expression in the ovine uterus during pregnancy and at 3 mo postpartum. High levels of 11 beta-HSD1 mRNA were detected in the endometrium from Days 60 to 143 (term = 145 days), and the levels did not change significantly during that time. The level of 11 beta-HSD1 mRNA in the endometrium was always much higher than that in the myometrium, in which… CONTINUE READING
