To evaluate the regulatory mechanism of cyclooxygenase(COX)-2 by estrogen and progesterone in uterine cell lines of rodents MATERIALS AND METHODS: CUE-P cells, originated from the uterine endometrial epithelial cells, and CUE-V2 cells, originated from the uterine endometrial stromal cells, were incubated in the Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium(DMEM) and F12 medium. The cellular proliferation were evaluated every 24 hours. The expression of COX-2 was measured after estrogen and progesterone supplementation by western blot. RESULTS: CUE-P cells have cuboidal morphology and CUS-V2 cells resemble fibroblast and exhibit a spindle-like morphology. When CUE-P and CUS-V2 cells were co-cultured with estrogen and progesterone supplementation, the expression of COX-2 was decreased after 24 hours of estrogen supplementation. The decreased expression of COX-2 was observed only when estrogen was supplemented after 9 hours of initial progesterone supplementation. CONCLUSION: The sex steroid, such as estrogen and progesterone could regulate COX-2 expression in uterine cell lines.
