Steroidogenic activity in the mature corpus luteum of most mammals depends upon provision of cholesterol from the circulating lipoproteins. In cattle, as in many species, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) is the major lipoprotein involved. The recent identification of the scavenger receptor SR-BI as an HDL-receptor allows control of this process to be investigated more closely. In this study, we have sequenced the bovine SR-BI HDL-receptor and examined changes in expression of the receptor mRNA… CONTINUE READING
