The down-regulation of glutathione peroxidase causes bovine luteal cell apoptosis during structural luteolysis.

Abstract

Prostaglandin (PG) F(2)a is known to initiate luteal cell apoptosis in the bovine corpus luteum (CL) via its specific receptor (FP) on the luteal membrane by inducing intracellular Ca(2+) mobilization and the activation of PKC. In order to identify the signaling components involved in cell apoptosis, mRNA levels and activities of antioxidative enzymes were… (More)
