In order to have a specific marker for studying pregnancy in cattle we examined the characteristics of a pregnancy serum protein produced by the placenta (PSP60). Its profile in peripheral blood was determined by radioimmunoassay in pregnant cows of 3 breeds after artificial insemination (AI): Charolais (n = 24), Normande (n = 24) and Holstein (n = 26). From 27 d post-AI to the end of pregnancy the plasma PSP60 concentration increased, especially during the last 2 wk, to reach a peak a few d… CONTINUE READING
