We examined the nonluteal production of relaxin in the pregnant baboon. In experimental animals (n = 5), the corpus luteum-bearing ovary was removed in early pregnancy (days 25-30), and intact pregnant baboons served as controls. In both groups of baboons, peripheral, uterine, and ovarian venous blood samples and amniotic fluid were collected immediately before hysterotomy, which was performed late in pregnancy (days 139-142). After hysterotomy, samples of reproductive and control tissues were… CONTINUE READING
