Leukocytes including monocyte/macrophages, granulocytes, and T lymphocytes were localized in the corpus luteum (CL) of pregnant and pseudopregnant rats using monoclonal antibodies reactive with lineage-specific antigens. Neutrophilic granulocytes and monocytes/macrophages were found to be the most abundant leukocyte populations in the CL during both pregnancy and pseudopregnancy. The density of neutrophilic granulocytes (MCA 149-reactive cells) increased approximately 2-fold after mating, to… CONTINUE READING
