Hi!  does anybody know the mechanism of action of relaxin?  it is a
hormone that is produced by the ovaries and acts to relax the smooth
muscles of the uterus (via myosin light chain kinase). i don't know much
beyond this.  my question is - do other cells have a receptor for relaxin 
or is the receptor specific to the uterus? any information is appreciated -

thanks - Kiran
