BIOCHEMICAL CHANGES IN FORMING AND REGRESSING DECIDUOMA IN THE RAT UTERUS

in Reproduction

Summary.

The activities of β-glucuronidase and acid cathepsin D remain at a low level while decidual tissue is forming in the rat uterus but increase markedly during the period of decidual regression. By contrast, acid and alkaline phosphatase rise during deciduomal formation but fall during regression. The importance of lysosomal enzymes in the breakdown of decidual tissue is discussed in relation to these results.
