The steroid hormone progesterone (P(4)) plays a key role in the reproductive events associated with pregnancy establishment and maintenance. High concentrations of circulating P(4) in the immediate post-conception period have been associated with an advancement of conceptus elongation, an associated increase in interferon-tau production and higher pregnancy rates in cattle. Using in vitro and in vivo models and approximately 8500 bovine oocytes across six experiments, the aim of this study was… CONTINUE READING
