The final phase of the uterotrophic response coincides with the induction of a battery of genes involved in the cytoarchitectural remodeling of proliferating uterine cells, thus providing a further link between phenotypic and gene expression changes (Figure 7A).
Correlated with these changes in protein expression, keratinocytes - for 24 h following injury - undergo major cytoarchitectural alterations that affect their shape, intracellular organization, surface morphology, and adhesion properties.
