Uteroplacental prostaglandins (PGs) play pivotal roles in maintenance and /or termination of pregnancy in mammals. Regulation of PG biosynthetic and signaling mechanisms in uteroplacental tissues during maintenance of pregnancy is largely unknown. In the present study, we have characterized the expression of PGE2 receptors (EP2, EP3, EP4), PGF2alpha receptor (FP), and cyclooxygenase (COX) types 1 and 2 in placentome caruncle (CAR), intercaruncle, and fetal membrane tissues during pregnancy in… CONTINUE READING
