    A C Holloway
    Department of Physiology, University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada
    Endocrine 14:343-8. 2001
    ..We suggest that in the late-gestation sheep fetus, cortisol and estradiol have opposite effects on pituitary POMC and GR mRNA expression, and interact to regulate these key components of the fetal HPA axis...

    R L Martin
    Canadian Institutes for Health Research Groups in Fetal and Neonatal Health and Development, Department of Physiology, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5S 1A8
    Biol Reprod 67:868-73. 2002
    ..These results suggest that PGES is not coregulated with PGHS-2 in the sheep placenta at term. The progressive increase in PGES, however, likely contributes to the rise in circulating PGE2 in the fetus in late pregnancy...
