Decidualization of the endometrial stroma in the rat gives rise to two different cell populations, located either mesometrially or antimesometrially in the uterus. We have previously shown that the rat decidua is the site of production and action of a PRL-like hormone. In this investigation we examined, using reverse transcription-PCR, whether and which type of PRL receptor (PRL-R) messenger RNA (mRNA) is expressed in the decidua, whether the receptor is confined only to one cell population… CONTINUE READING
