RUDOLPH, M. Isolde; ROJAS, I. Gina  and  PENISSI, Alicia B.. Uterine mast cells: A new hypothesis to understand how we are born. Biocell [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.1, pp.1-11. ISSN 0327-9545.

Birth is the result of complex, well-defined, and coordinated events, that are tightly regulated by endocrine, nervous, and immune responses, and take place primarily in the female reproductive tract. Various mechanisms and mediators involved in pregnancy, labor, and delivery, are highly conserved among different mammalian species and mast cells emerge as potential and crucial participants in these processes, as it is discussed in this review. 

Keywords : Uterine Mast Cells; Labor; Myometrium Contractions; Cervical Ripening.
