  1. Immunofluorescent labeling; Density defined as cells number in 20 fields of view and relative density as percentage of positive cells relative to the highest density region. The different letters in superscript indicate groups with statistically significant differences (P < 0.05): diestrus/estrus and regions of reproductive tract
