NORMAL MENSTRUAL CYCLE-REGULATORY MOLECULES

Rhman malik

Abstract


As glandular proliferation persists in the early secretory phase of the menstrual cycle, the activity of some proteins stimulating growth remains unchanged, but declines significantly thereafter, shifting the balance between proliferation and apoptosis in favour of apoptosis. During this period, several other regulatory substances are expressed at high levels, suggesting a role in endometrial maturation. If, however, implantation of a fertilized ovum fails to take place, menstruation occurs probably as the result of matrix metalloprotinases which antagononizes the anti-degradation factors (inhibitors of metalloproteinases). This review examines the changing endometrial patterns of a normal menstrual cycle in relation to these regulatory molecule.
