Granulosa cells isolated from ovaries of non-cycling, cycling and pregnant rabbits of the same age were cultured in vitro either without or with pFSH (1 micrograms/ml), bLH (1 IU/ml), LH-RH (25 ng/ml) or arginine-8-vasotocin (100 ng/ml). The production of immunoreactive progesterone, estradiol-17 beta, oxytocin, arginine-8-vasopressin and cGMP was analyzed. The gonadotropins did not show any significant effects on the cells isolated from non-cycling and cycling rabbits, but not from these of… CONTINUE READING
