  • This study reviews the roles of steroid receptors, mainly oestrogen receptor alpha (ERα) and progesterone receptor (PR) in pig uterine tissues with an emphasis on various stages of the oestrous cycle comparing to the time of early pregnancy. In addition, the secretory and proliferative activities under the influence of steroid hormones and their specific receptors were also documented. Some differences were found with respect to uterine compartments and physiological status of the uterus which… CONTINUE READING
