Prostaglandins (PGs) interact with specific receptors on plasma membranes to regulate myometrial activity in many species. The present study examined whether the expression of relaxant prostaglandin E receptor subtype two (EP(2)) and contractile prostaglandin F receptor (FP) mRNA in the rat uterus is changed during various states of pregnancy and regulated by steroid hormones. Expression of mRNA for EP(2) and FP receptors in the full-thickness uteri was analyzed by reverse transcription… CONTINUE READING
