Abstract: Insights derived from recent studies employing rodent models demonstrate that the synthesis of pluripotent cytokines is an important function of resident cells in the female reproductive tract. Through steroid hormone regulated secretion of these mediators, resident cells appear to coordinate the recruitment and action of leukocytes that are centrally implicated in the dramatic remodelling processes characteristic of reproductive events.
