Relaxin: old hormone, new prospect



Relaxin: old hormone, new prospect



Oxford Reviews of Reproductive Biology 1: 1-57



This review includes consideration of the techniques of measuring relaxin levels, and the effects of relaxin on the pubic symphysis, cervix, uterus, mammary gland and vagina. Sources and plasma levels of relaxin for males and females , and the role of relaxin in the maintenance of pregnancy and the accomplishment of parturition are also considered.
