StAR protein is increased by muscarinic receptor activation in human luteinized granulosa cells.

Abstract

Cultured human luteinized granulosa cells (GC) are a unique model to study regulation of the human corpus luteum, e.g. by local factors, including acetylcholine (ACh). GC express functional ACh-receptors of the M1-type (M1R). Priming with the cholinergic agonist carbachol for 24 h, followed by a 24 h stimulation with human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG… (More)
