Figure 2

Compartmentalized in vitro secretion of total MMP-9 and MMP-2. Quantitation by ELISA of MMP-9 (a) and MMP-2 (b) in amnion (AMN) and choriodecidua (CHD) regions after selective stimulation with E. coli. Each bar represents the mean and standard deviation of nine independent experiments; significant differences between basal and stimulated condition are indicated (*P < 0.05).
