This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of estrus induction with gonadotropins on endometrial and conceptus expression of HoxA10, transforming growth factor (TGF) beta1, leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF), and prostaglandin H synthase-2 (PGHS-2) during early pregnancy in pigs. Twenty-four prepubertal gilts received 750 IU of pregnant mare serum gonadotropin (PMSG) and 500 IU of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) 72h later. Gilts in the control group (n=23) were observed daily for estrus… CONTINUE READING
