Gynecologic and Obstetric: Proteomics of myometrium in pregnancy and labor
The remodelling and maturation processes that the myometrium undergoes in pregnancy appear clearly as phenomena which last during the full course of gestation.
Nevertheless, genomic studies constitute a necessary first step of orientation and help establishing new links between the generic signaling pathways that are activated during the normal or pathological gestation.

Adenomyosis is a disease occurring at the interface between the endometrium and the myometrium.
Detecting such areas of heterogeneous echogenicity within the myometrium is often complicated by the presence of various artefactual echogenic shadows and the confusion is compounded by the presence of leiomyomata and vascular calcifications.
Brosens and co-workers recently suggested that the myoproliferative changes may not always occur in concert with endometrial penetration of the myometrium and that it may be more sensible to correlate the junctional zone widths with an objective assessment of the patient's symptoms (22).

However, the impact of SERMs on the uterine myometrium or leiomyomas had not been previously evaluated; thus an analysis of the effects of the SERMs tamoxifen and raloxifene on these target tissues was undertaken in the Eker rat model.

currents in human myometrium are not well characterized, and were therefore investigated, using the whole-cell patch clamp technique, in freshly isolated myometrial smooth muscle cells from pregnant women at term.
The muscle of the uterus, the myometrium, is a spontaneously active smooth muscle which remains largely quiescent throughout most of pregnancy, and then at term provides powerful rhythmic contractions in order to expel the fetus.
To our knowledge, all biopsies were taken from the same region of the myometrium from women at term who were not in active labour, and under light microscopy there were no obvious morphological differences between the two groups of cells.

With modern imaging techniques, adenomyosis can be diagnosed without surgery and thus we are able to begin to understand the natural history of the condition and to test the effectiveness of non-surgical therapies.
Adenomyosis is the presence of uterine lining tissue deep within the myometrium or muscular wall of the uterus (1) (see Figure 1).
The findings may include myometrial thickening with increased or decreased echogenicity of the myometrium, a poorly defined area of heterogeneous myometrium, or cysts.

This is supported by the present data showing the effect of estrogen on rat myometrium and our previous data on rabbits showing a highly significant reduction of myometrial NOS activity by estrogen and estrogen and progesterone treatment [10].
In view of the very low NOS activity in the human myometrium as compared with rat shown here or rabbit reported previously [9,10], it is justified to importantly consider the possibility in human pregnancy of paracrine effects of fetal-placental NO in maintaining quiescence of the myometrium.
In pregnancy there appears to be a down-regulation of NOS activity in the human myometrium, which is probably due at least in part to hormonal influence, as substantiated with the data from rat and rabbit [9,10].
