Figure 3: TsPR gene expression in T. solium. A single band of 206 bp, corresponding to the Taenia solium Progesterone Receptor (TsPR) was detected in T. solium and mouse uterus (a). Progesterone as well as RU486 increased TsPR expression in T. solium cysticerci. Densitometric analysis is shown in (b). β-actin was used as constitutive expression gene. Data are represented as mean SD; .
