OBJECTIVE To evaluate estrogens (Es)--E2, estrone (E1), and estriol--and androgens--T and androstendione (A)-effect on P, prostaglandin (PG) F2α, PGE2, and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) release and on VEGF expression in human luteal cells. To elucidate whether androgens effects were direct or mediated by their conversion in Es, an aromatase… CONTINUE READING
