Downregulation of core clock gene Bmal1 attenuates expression of progesterone and prostaglandin biosynthesis-related genes in rat luteinizing granulosa cells.


Ovarian circadian oscillators have been implicated in the reproductive processes of mammals. However, there are few reports regarding the detection of ovarian clock-controlled genes (CCGs). The present study was designed to unravel the mechanisms through which CCG ovarian circadian oscillators regulate fertility, primarily using quantitative RT-PCR and RNA… (More)
