Secretion of oxytocin and progesterone by ovine corpora lutea in vitro.

Abstract

The mechanisms involved in the control of oxytocin and progesterone secretion by the ovine corpus luteum have been investigated in vitro using luteal slice incubations. Oxytocin and progesterone were secreted at constant rates from luteal slices for 2 h of incubation (366 +/- 60 pg X mg X h and 18.9 +/- 0.18 ng X mg X h, respectively). Secretion of… (More)
