The expression of secretory component (SC) by human glandular endometrial cells cultured invitro was significantly increased by estradiol in the medium. Interferon-gamma and interleukin-4 stimulated the expression of SC only in the presence of estrogen. Tumor necrosis factor-alpha plus estrogen also caused a significant increase in the number of cells expressing SC. HLA class II antigen DR was detected on few glandular epithelial cells of human endometrium cultured in control medium, whereas… CONTINUE READING
