STEROID HORMONES AND ENVIRONMENTAL MIMICS
All aspects of reproduction are influenced by the ovarian steroid hormones estrogen and progesterone. The mechanisms of their action via classical estrogen and progesterone receptors and through other signaling pathways are an active area of interest in our laboratories. The following papers highlight our recent contributions to the understanding of steroid hormone actions in embryo-uterine signaling.
