Effects of cortisol on the mRNA expression of VEGF (a), CTGF (b) and TGF-β1(c) in bovine endometrial epithelial cells. The bovine endometrial epithelial cells were treated with cortisol (5, 15 and 30 ng/mL) for 0, 3, 12, or 18 h. RNA was extracted and analyzed by qPCR. con = control cells without any processing; low = 5 ng/mL cortisol; mid = 15 ng/mL cortisol; high = 30 ng/mL cortisol. Three uteri (different sets of culture cells) were used for analysis. The data are presented as the means ± SEM. * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01 vs the control group
