Isoform A of the human insulin receptor and the IGF-receptor type 2 (IGFR-2) are both receptors for insulin-like growth factor II (IGF II), which plays a major role in luteal development and function in bovine species. The objective of this study was to determine if both insulin receptor isoforms and IGFR-2 were expressed in the bovine corpus luteum (CL) and if they were regulated during the estrous cycle, pregnancy, and induced luteolysis. CL were collected at the slaughter-house. For induced… CONTINUE READING
