- 17Beta-estradiol suppresses TLR3-induced cytokine and chemokine production in endometrial epithelial cellsMargaret J Lesmeister
Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology, University of Missouri Columbia, School of Medicine, MO, USA
Reprod Biol Endocrinol 3:74. 2005..In this study, the effects of 17beta-estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P) on TLR3 expression and function in endometrial cell lines were investigated...
- Human endometrial epithelial cells cyclically express Toll-like receptor 3 (TLR3) and exhibit TLR3-dependent responses to dsRNARebecca L Jorgenson
Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology, University of Missouri Columbia, School of Medicine, Columbia, MO 65212, USA
Hum Immunol 66:469-82. 2005..Our findings suggest that TLR3 is involved in the immune responses of endometrial epithelial cells after exposure to dsRNA and has the potential to alter the cytokine milieu and influence the outcome and consequences of infection...
