To evaluate the effect of nitric oxide (NO·) in human corpus luteum (CL) function, we investigated the expression and the presence of NO· synthase (NOS) in the human CL and the action of NO· on the in vitro luteal steroid production. The expression of endothelial NOS (eNOS) in early, mid-, and late CL was assessed by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain… CONTINUE READING
