As estrogen and progesterone are proposed regulators of luteal function, this study was undertaken to correlate the presence of receptors for these steroids with luteal function during early pregnancy. Corpora lutea (CL) were obtained from nonpregnant baboons during the midluteal [ML; days 7-8 postovulation (PO)] and late luteal (LL: days 11-12 PO) phases of the menstrual cycle or from pregnant baboons on days 18, 25, 29, or 31-33 PO. Estrogen and progestin receptors (ER and PR, respectively… CONTINUE READING
