Increased prostaglandin (PG) production within the uterine compartment has a pivotal role in the processes leading to labor onset in women. Two PG endoperoxide-H synthase (PGHS) isoenzymes have been identified in a number of cell types. PGHS-1 is constitutively expressed in most cases, whereas PGHS-2 expression is rapidly induced by several agonists. The aims of this study were to determine the levels of PGHS-1 and PGHS-2 expression before and after spontaneous labor (SL) onset in the amnion… CONTINUE READING
