Background. Pyrimidine nucleoside phosphorylase (PyNPase) is identical to the protein, platelet-derived endothelial cell growth factor (PD-ECGF), which has angiogenic activity. The physiological roles of PyNPase activity in the uterus and ovary are not known. In this study, we measured PyNPase activity in normal tissues of the uterus, ovary, and lymph nodes, and in benign and malignant lesions of these organs, and we considered the clinical implications of PyNPase activity in the uterus and… CONTINUE READING
