- Endometriosis uterina
Endometriosis uterina: Also known as adenomyosis (pronounced ad-den-o-mi-o-sis), this is a common benign condition of the uterus in which the endometrium (the mucous membrane lining the inside of the uterus) grows into the myometrium (the uterine musculature located just outside the endometrium).

Endometritis: Inflammation of the endometrium, the inner layer of the uterus.
Endonuclease: An enzyme that cleaves a nucleic acid (DNA or RNA) at specific sites in the nucleotide base sequence.
Endopeptidase: An enzyme that catalyzes the cleavage of peptide bonds within a polypeptide or protein. Peptidase refers to the fact that it acts on peptide bonds and endopeptidase refers to the fact that these are internal bonds. An exopeptide catalyzes the cleavage of the terminal or penultimate peptide bond, releasing a single amino acid or […]
- Endoplasmic reticulum
Endoplasmic reticulum: A structure within cells that is an extension of the nuclear membrane and in which proteins slated to become part of the nuclear membrane are translated, folded and transported. Abbreviated ER.
