Rapid effect of progesterone on transepithelial resistance of human fetal membranes: Evidence for non-genomic action
1. The factors that regulate human fetal membrane transport mechanisms are unknown. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of progesterone on transepithelial electrical resistance (R-TE) in the human ...
In vitro responsiveness of human post-menopausal myometrium to endothelin-1 and ovarian steroids
It has been shown in vitro that endothelin 1 (ET1) differentially affects the human myometrial contractility according to the hormonal profile of women. Our purpose was to test the hypothesis that ovarian steroids influence ...
Evidence for non genomic action of 17 beta estradiol on transepithelial resistance of human fetal membranes
Background: The role of hormones in the transport mechanisms of human fetal membranes in pregnancy is unclear. Estrogens are essential hormones in pregnancy and they play an important role in the ion transport via membranes. ...
In vitro effects of endothelin-1 on the contractility of myometrium obtained from pre- and postmenopausal women
This study was conducted to evaluate the responsiveness of human nonpregnant myometrium to endothelin 1 (ET1) (10(-10) M-10(-6) M) and KCl (80 mM) in relation to the hormonal profile of the women, who were allocated into ...
