Ewes (N = 32) were bled every 2 h from 5 days before expected oestrus until the end of oestrus. Plasma concentrations were determined for progesterone to monitor luteal activity and for the prostaglandin F-2 alpha (PGF-2 alpha) metabolites, 15-keto-13,14-dihydro-PGF-2 alpha and 11-ketotetranor-PGF to determine uterine synthesis and release of PGF-2 alpha… CONTINUE READING
