Identification, characterization, and biological activity of endothelin receptors in human ovary.

Abstract

We previously reported the expression of endothelin-1 (ET-1) in granulosa cells (GCs) of the human ovary and the presence of ET-1-like immunoreactivity in human follicular fluid obtained from women in an in vitro fertilization program. In follicular fluid, but not in plasma, the levels of ET-1-like immunoreactivity were higher in gonadotropin-stimulated vs… (More)
