Title:
The effect of insulin-like growth factor-I, relaxin and luteinizing hormone on vascular endothelial growth factor secretion by cultured endometrial stromal cells on different days of early pregnancy in pigs 
Abstract:
The effect of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), relaxin (RLX) and luteinizing hormone (LH) on vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in vitro secretion by endometrial stromal cells in pigs was investigated on days 10-12 and 20-22 of gestation. LH-stimulated stromal cell secretion of VEGF did not differ among tested days of early pregnancy. However, IGF-I- and RLX-mediated release of VEGF depended on the day of pregnancy. It seems that IGF-I and RLX may be considered as potent activators...    »
