Immune cells, which constitute a significant cell mass in the corpora lutea (CLs), are considered to play critical roles in luteolysis, but the details are not fully understood. We histochemically investigated the changes in distribution and cell density of macrophages and T lymphocytes and in tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha and interferon (IFN)-gamma, which can induce apoptosis in the luteal cells in murine CLs during luteal regression. No macrophages or T lymphocytes were observed in… CONTINUE READING
