Alterations, produced by ovarian stimulation, in-vitro culture conditions and specifically alterations of zona pellucida are mentioned as possible causes of this phenomenon.

We have reviewed the properties of luteinizing hormone/human chorionic gonadotropic (LH/hCG)-sensitive adenylyl cyclase (AC) of human corpus luteum (CL) and its regulation by several hormones and nonhormonal activators. We have also described the changes in enzyme activity in membrane preparations of human and cynomolgus monkey CL obtained at various stages(More)
We have investigated membrane fractions prepared from human endometrium for activity of the signalling adenyl cyclase (AC). We characterized the AC guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins) and examined the changes in AC activity during evaluation cycles of oestrogen and progesterone replacement therapy as well during ovarian stimulation cycles. AC(More)
