Each is a homologous protein transcribed from different promoters of the same gene [15–17]. Epithelial and stromal cells express PR-A and PR-B in the proliferative phase. In the luteal phase, only the stromal cells express PR-A and PR-B (PR-A is predominant), while the expression of both the receptors are downregulated in the epithelial cells [18, 19]. PR expression in stromal cells is unaffected by chronic exposure to long-acting progestational agents [20]. Growth Factors A large number of mitogenic growth factors are secreted by the endometrium, modulating sex steroid action on the endometrium.

Endothelial cells sprout from the ruptured arterioles and venules in the basal layer of endometrium and recruit pericytes and smooth muscle cells [58, 59]. VEGF plays an important initial role, inducing recruitment and proliferation of endothelial cells, and forming tubules and tight junctions between cells [60, 61]. Intense vasoconstriction of spiral arterioles prior to onset of bleeding induces local tissue ischemia in the endometrium. This hypoxia induces VEGF expression via hypoxia-inducible factor a [62].

KGF is expressed at higher levels in the stromal cells and during the secretory phase. It is proposed to mediate epithelial–stromal signaling [31]. Platelet-derived growth ­factor (PDGF) is secreted by stromal cells and platelets. It is localized to the stromal cells and stimulates stromal cell proliferation and angiogenesis. R. S. Taylor and mid-secretory phases. It has multiple influences on cell growth. TNFb is mitogenic, angiogenic, immunomodulatory, and inflammatory in its actions.
