Coordinate induction and activation of metalloproteinase and ascorbate depletion in structural luteolysis.

Abstract

Structural luteolysis was found decades ago to be induced by PRL in the hypophysectomized rat, but the mechanisms of this process are unknown. To gain information on mechanisms of luteal involution, we developed an animal model that circumvented complex surgery and provided ample tissue for analyses. Gonadotropin-synchronized ovulation and luteinization… (More)
