Expression of Key Prostaglandin Synthases in Equine Endometrium During Late Diestrus and Early Pregnancy1
Abstract Luteolysis in domestic species is mediated by the release of luteolytic pulses of prostaglandin (PG) F2α by the uterus at the end of diestrus, which must be suppressed by the conceptus to… Expand
