Serum progesterone and 17 beta-estradiol during pregnancy in the Bactrian camel were measured by radioimmunoassay. Serum progesterone concentrations increased by 15 d after artificial insemination (AI) and remained elevated throughout most of gestation, the mean concentrations (3.06 +/- 0.49 to 8.51 +/- 4.80 ng/mL) were similar to those reported for many species during the same stage of pregnancy. Serum 17 beta-estradiol increased significantly from 11 m.o. of pregnancy with peak mean… CONTINUE READING
