Although prostaglandin (PG) F(2alpha) released from the uterus has been shown to cause regression of the bovine corpus luteum (CL), the neuroendocrine, paracrine, and autocrine mechanisms regulating luteolysis and PGF(2alpha) action in the CL are not fully understood. A number of substances produced locally in the CL may be involved in maintaining the… CONTINUE READING
