Effect of luteinizing hormone on progestin levels in rabbit corpora lutea.

Abstract

Rabbits were injected intravenously with luteinizing hormone (lh) or saline solution on Day 9 of pseudopregnancy and killed \m=1/2\,24 or 48 hr later. Corpora lutea of lh-treated animals had decreased significantly in size and progesterone content at 24 and 48 hr compared to corpora lutea of control rabbits. Luteal content and concentration of 20\g=a\-hydroxypregn-4-en-3-onewere increased at \m=1/2\hr but decreased over the next 48 hr.
