Background: There are numerous couples worldwide currently suffering from infertility. Several factors, including genetic abnormalities are involved in infertility. In this study, we investigated the expression of myc gene in uterine tissue of infertile women. The protein encoded by this gene is one of the important transcription factors involved in the expression of many genes in the embryonic growth, and development pathways. Methods: There are about 45 samples of uterine tissue from women with primary and secondary infertility were involved in this study. After extracting RNA and synthesizing cDNA, using specific primers for the myc gene and the beta-actin gene (as an internal control), gene expression was evaluated by Real-time RT-PCR method. Results: The results of myc gene expression analysis showed no significant pattern between the affected and healthy women, however decreasing of its expression should not be rejected. Conclusions: This study is the first report about myc gene expression and its relation with the primary and secondary infertility. Myc gene expression study at different times of sexual period of infertile woman is suggested. Also, we proposed here, as a preventive strategy, improvement of the expression level of myc gene by some methods, such as hormone therapy, can increase the implantation success in the infertile women.
