Abstract

The aim of the present work was the characterization of nonpregnant and early pregnant myometrium (days 3-6) of the rat by means of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The spontaneous motor activity as well as the KCl-evoked contractions of isolated uterine rings was additionally recorded. A relatively close correlation was found between calorimetric enthalpy (ΔH) and the contractility of the uterus samples. Our results indicate that DSC is a useful tool for the investigation of the functions of developing myometrium and it can be considered as supplementing the traditional structural and functional methods.
