    Endometrial receptivity is a prerequisite for blastocyst implantation. During receptivity, the hairy-like epithelial cell microvilli transiently fuse to a single flower-like membrane projection called the 'pinopode'. Scanning electron microscopy in sequential endometrial biopsies shows that...

    The present study aimed to investigate whether gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogues (GnRH-as), including GnRH agonists and antagonists, affect endometrial homeobox (Hox) a10 DNA methylation during the implantation window in mice. GnRH analogue mouse models were used and were treated with...
