Researchers find molecular mechanisms within fetal lungs that initiate labor

22 junio 2015

Researchers have identified two proteins in a fetus’ lungs responsible for initiating the labor process, providing potential new targets for preventing preterm birth. They discovered that the proteins SRC-1 and SRC-2 activate genes inside the fetus’ lungs near full term, leading to an inflammatory response in the mother’s uterus that initiates labor.
