Salama, Salama A.; Ho, Shu Leong; Wang, Hui Qun; Tenhunen, Jukka; Tilgmann, Carola LU and Al-Hendy, Ayman (2006) In Fertility and Sterility 86(1). p.259-262
Abstract

Catechol-O-methyl transferase (COMT) expression is higher in leiomyomas compared with paired normal myometrium. The expression of COMT in leiomyoma cells is hormonally regulated-estrogen down-regulates, whereas P and dexamethasone up-regulate, COMT expression. © 2006 American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
