Steroidogenesis in porcine non-conceptus tissue is regulated by the STAR-dependent transport of cholesterol from the outer to inner mitochondrial membrane. Previous serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE) identified a STAR mRNA transcript in the porcine peri-implantation conceptus during trophectoderm elongation and increased conceptus estrogen synthesis between gestational day 11 and 12. To assess a potential role for STAR in the modulation of conceptus steroidogenesis via cholesterol… CONTINUE READING
