Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To explore the molecular mechanism of jiantai liquid (JTL) in improving endometrial receptivity of mice with embryo implantation dysfunction (EID).

METHODS:

Mice model of EID induced by mifepristone were intervened with JTL (Twig of Chinese Taxillus, Red Sage root, Chinese Angelica, Milkvetch root, Chuanxiong rhizome), and sacrificed on day 8 of pregnancy. The endometrial estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) protein and their gene expressions were assessed by Western blot and semi-quantitative reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR).

RESULTS:

Levels of ER and PR protein and their gene expressions in the JTL treated group were significantly higher than those in the model group respectively (all P < 0.05), and showed insignificant difference from those in the normal control group (all P > 0.05).

CONCLUSION:

JTL could promote the development of endometrium and improve the embryo implantation by way of regulating the levels of ER and PR protein and gene expression in mice with EID.
