Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its specific receptors FLT-1 and FLK-1 represent an important ligand-receptor system involved in angiogenesis and permeability. These factors are supposed to be influenced by ovarian steroids involved in developmental changes in female reproductive tissue as oviduct and uterus. The aims of this study were to assess the expression of VEGF and its receptor mRNAs during the early implantation period in porcine endometrium using real-time RT-PCR… CONTINUE READING
