Prostaglandin synthesis, metabolism, and signaling potential in the rhesus macaque corpus luteum throughout the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle.

Abstract

Prostaglandins in the corpus luteum (CL) reportedly serve as luteotropic and luteolytic agents. Based mainly on studies conducted in domesticated animals and rodents, prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) is generally considered a luteotropic factor, whereas uterine-derived prostaglandin F2alpha (PGF2alpha) initiates luteolysis. However, the role of prostaglandins in… (More)
