Effect of estriol on the structure and organization of collagen in the lamina propria of the immature rat uterus



Effect of estriol on the structure and organization of collagen in the lamina propria of the immature rat uterus



Biology of Reproduction 47(1): 83-91



Estradiol produces both hypertrophic and hyperplastic changes in the uterus, and these changes are associated with alterations in the structure of collagen in the lamina propria. Estriol induces only hypertrophic responses in the immature rat uterus; its effects on collagen structure were characterized in this study. Light micrographs of Masson's trichrome-stained sections revealed that the intensity of the collagen stain in the lamina propria of the rat uterus was profoundly reduced, relative to that in controls, 4 h after estriol (40 micrograms/kg) administration. These changes were not evident 24 h after estriol administration. In control uteri, transmission electron micrographs revealed that the collagen fibers surrounding stromal cells formed dense collections of bundles that were seen throughout the extracellular matrix, whereas in tissues exposed to estriol 4 h earlier, large regions of the extracellular spaces were devoid of collagen bundles. The 4-h changes in collagen were eliminated when animals were pretreated with actinomycin D (8 mg/kg) or cycloheximide (4 mg/kg). Dense collections of collagen bundles were present in tissues 24 h after estriol treatment, and their appearance was not altered by actinomycin D or cycloheximide treatment. Alterations in collagen 4 h after hormone administration appeared to be estrogen-specific since dexamethasone (600 micrograms/kg) and dihydrotestosterone (400 micrograms/kg) had no effect. These data provide evidence that the changes in collagen structure in the uterus are associated with events that function during the hypertrophic growth responses induced by estrogens.
