The results of our experimental studies indicate that that parturition is composed principally of two major phases, a relatively long conditioning (preparatory) phase followed by a short and probably irreversible active labor phase. The major events of conditioning phase are: (i) the progression of uterine contractility from an inactive to a vigorously active state, (ii) cervical ripening, and (iii) activation of fetal membranes. Our experimental and molecular studies indicate that nitric oxide… Expand
