Endometriosis, characterized by the growth of endometrium outside the uterine cavity, is a disease which causes pelvic pain, inflammation and associated with infertility. Endometrium, which exits the uterus through retrograde ...
In Situ and In Vitro Immunolocalization of Oviductin Binding Sites on Hamster Uterine Epithelial Cells and Detection of a Hamster Oviductin Homologue in the Female Rat Reproductive Tract
Oviductin is an oviduct-specific and high-molecular-weight glycoprotein that has been suggested to play important roles in the early events of reproduction. The present study was undertaken to localize the oviductin binding ...
The Importance of MHC-Independent Natural Killer Cell Receptors in the Immunoregulation of Murine Pregnancy
Numerous leukocyte populations are essential for pregnancy success. Uterine natural killer (uNK) cells are chief amongst these leukocytes and represent a unique lineage with limited cytotoxicity but abundant angiokine ...
Identification and Development of Enzymes Associated With the Sperm Inner Acrosomal Membrane and Their Function During Fertilization
In order for mammalian fertilization to transpire, spermatozoa must transit through the female reproductive tract and penetrate the outer investments of the oocyte: the cumulus oophorus and the zona pellucida. In order ...
