Activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and lipid peroxide (LPO) were studied in corpora lutea of pregnant rats. SOD activities, both Mn-SOD and Cu,Zn-SOD, gradually increased in the corpora lutea until day 15 of pregnancy and decreased thereafter until day 21 of pregnancy, in a similar manner to serum progesterone concentration. LPO activities remained low until day 15 of pregnancy, but increased rapidly after day 15 to day 21 of pregnancy. Incubation of the dispersed luteal cells from day 15… 

Figures from this paper

Superoxide dismutase expression in the human corpus luteum during the menstrual cycle and in early pregnancy.
TLDR
The present study suggests that the superoxide radical and its scavenging system, especially Cu,Zn-SOD, play important roles in the regulation of human luteal function.
Changes in activity of superoxide dismutase in the human endometrium throughout the menstrual cycle and in early pregnancy.
TLDR
The results suggested that the superoxide radical and its scavenging system may play an important role in the regulation of human endometrial function.
Antioxidant enzymatic defence systems in sheep corpus luteum throughout pregnancy.
TLDR
The results showed that the activities of antioxidant enzymes in the sheep CL are subject to major changes during early pregnancy, suggesting that the CL of early pregnancy may be rescued from luteolysis through increasing activities of key antioxidant enzymes and inhibition of apoptosis.
Decreased superoxide dismutase expression and increased concentrations of lipid peroxide and prostaglandin F(2alpha) in the decidua of failed pregnancy.
TLDR
Cu,Zn-SOD may contribute to the maintenance of pregnancy by preventing the accumulation of superoxide radicals that cause PGF(2alpha) synthesis, which could be involved in the termination of spontaneous abortion.
Roles of prostaglandin F2alpha and hydrogen peroxide in the regulation of Copper/Zinc superoxide dismutase in bovine corpus luteum and luteal endothelial cells
TLDR
Overall results indicate that, SOD is regulated by PGF and ROS in bovine LECs, and may play a role in controlling intraluteal P GF and ROS action during functional and structural luteolysis in cows.
Hormonal regulation of copper-zinc superoxide dismutase and manganese superoxide dismutase messenger ribonucleic acid in the rat corpus luteum: induction by prolactin and placental lactogens.
TLDR
PRL and PRL-like hormones induce a protective ability against toxic oxygen radicals by stimulating the expression of SODs, a phenomenon that may play an important role in maintaining luteal cell integrity and steroidogenic capacity.
Differential regulation of copper-zinc superoxide dismutase and manganese superoxide dismutase in the rat corpus luteum: induction of manganese superoxide dismutase messenger ribonucleic acid by inflammatory cytokines.
TLDR
Cu,Zn-SOD and Mn-S OD mRNAs are differently expressed and regulated in the corpus luteum of pregnancy and may play an important role in protecting luteal cells from inflammation-mediated oxidative damage.
Different mechanisms for the induction of copper-zinc superoxide dismutase and manganese superoxide dismutase by progesterone in human endometrial stromal cells.
TLDR
In the process of decidualization, E(2) + MPA increases Mn-SOD expression via a cAMP-dependent pathway, but via a different pathway from that involving cAMP.
Suppression of intracellular superoxide dismutase activity by antisense oligonucleotides causes inhibition of progesterone production by rat luteal cells.
TLDR
The decrease in intracellular Cu, Zn-SOD activities inhibits progesterone production by rat luteal cells, which may be mediated by superoxide radicals, suggesting that intrace cellular Cu,Zn- SOD plays important roles in the regulation of luteAL function.

Superoxide radical production in plasma membrane samples from regressing rat corpora lutea.
TLDR
The results indicate that the production of superoxide radical increases in plasma membrane samples prepared from regressing rat corpora lutea and that this increase is mainly due to the products of phospholipase A2 and cyclooxygenase activity.
Induction of peroxidase in corpora lutea of rat ovary by lutropin.
TLDR
It is suggested that ascorbate, which is a well-established donor in peroxidase reactions, undergoes rapid oxidation in the presence of this enzyme, producing an intermediate free radical which, if coupled with pregnenolone, might produce progesterone in the corpora lutea.
Evidence that hydrogen peroxide blocks hormone-sensitive cholesterol transport into mitochondria of rat luteal cells.
TLDR
It is concluded that hydrogen peroxide inhibits steroidogenesis by blocking intracellular transport of cholesterol to mitochondria or translocation of cholesterol across the outer mitochondrial membrane.
Relationship of luteal blood flow and corpus luteum function in pseudopregnant rats.
TLDR
It was concluded that physiological luteal regression may not be initiated by a reduction of blood flow to the corpus luteum, as judged from plasma levels of progesterone in mature pseudopregnant rats.
Inhibition of gonadotropin action and progesterone synthesis by xanthine oxidase in rat luteal cells.
TLDR
It is concluded that superoxide was rapidly dismuted to hydrogen peroxide and mediated the antigonadotropic and antisteroidogenic actions of xanthine oxidase in luteal cells, raising the possibility that this enzyme may serve as a significant source of hydrogenperoxide in the corpus luteum.
