Table 2 TGF-β1 amplification from endometrium cDNA of women without and with endometriosis during the menstrual cycle.

From: Augmented cell survival in eutopic endometrium from women with endometriosis: Expression of c-myc, TGF-beta1 and bax genes

  Normal Endometriosis
Proliferative 1.12 ± 0.1 0.92 ± 0.2
Secretory Early 0.82 ± 0.2 0.86 ± 0.1
Secretory Mid 1.56 ± 0.2# 1.10 ± 0.1*
Secretory Late 1.49 ± 0.1# 1.05 ± 0.1*
  1. Data correspond to amplification rate relative to 18S rRNA. Results are given as mean ± SEM from: 8 and 5 proliferative; 7 and 8 early; 4 and 8 mid and 4 late secretory endometria obtained from women without (normal) and with endometriosis, respectively. *p < 0.05 vs. normal endometrium; #p < 0.05 vs. early secretory phase.
