Effect of oxytocin on plasma concentrations of 13,14-dihydro-15-keto prostaglandin F and the oxytocin-associated neurophysin during the estrous cycle and early pregnancy in the ewe.

Abstract

This study was undertaken to determine the effect of exogenous oxytocin on plasma concentrations of the prostaglandin (PG) F metabolite 13,14-dihydro-15-keto-PGF (PGFM) and the oxytocin-associated neurophysin (OT-N) during the estrous cycle and early pregnancy in the ewe. Ewes were given oxytocin (250 mU, i.v.) on Days 3 (n = 4), 8 (n = 5), 13 (n = 4) or 14… (More)
