Quantitative light microscopic analysis of corpus luteum growth during pseudopregnancy in the rabbit.


We employed stereological methods at the light-microscope level to examine the mechanism by which corpora lutea (CL) grow during the course of pseudopregnancy in the rabbit. Corpus luteum volume per ovary, the absolute volume of luteal cells per CL, individual luteal cell volume, the number of luteal and endothelial cells per CL, and capillary surface area… (More)
