A factor was found in human follicular fluid that blocked progesterone-stimulated net uptake of 45Ca2+ in human sperm and progesterone-induced maturation of Xenopus oocyte. The factor was partially purified by ultrafiltration through PM-10 membrane and gel filtration on Sephadex G-25 column. The active fraction is effective at a concentration of 200… CONTINUE READING
