Coexpression of preprotachykinin A and B transcripts in the bovine corpus luteum and evidence for functional neurokinin receptor activity in luteal endothelial cells and ovarian macrophages.

Abstract

Nonneuronal cell sources of tachykinins, such as substance P (SP) and neurokinin B (NKB), have been demonstrated in leukocytes, endothelial cells and endocrine cells, and may play a role in corpus luteum (CL) development. For this reason, we analyzed mRNA presence for the two tachykinin precursors together with the neurokinin-1 receptor and the neurokinin-3… (More)
