Reactive oxygen species (ROS) and their control by antioxidant enzymes are involved in the physiology of the female reproductive system. Thus, it is important to understand the regulation of key antioxidant enzymatic pathways. The roles of estrogen and progesterone in regulating the physiological functions of the endometrium have become central dogma. We examined the effects of ovarian steroids on superoxide dismutases (SOD1 and SOD2), catalase (CAT), glutathione peroxidase (GPX), and… CONTINUE READING
