An experiment was carried out to determine the pattern of follicular expression of mRNAs for aromatase, IGF-I receptor (IGF-IR), IGF-binding protein (IGFBP)-2, -4 and -5, leptin and the long form of the leptin receptor (Ob-Rb) in ten ewes infused with human recombinant leptin (n = 5; 1 microg/h) or saline (n = 5) for 72 h in the luteal phase of the oestrous cycle. At the end of infusion a follicular phase was induced with a luteolytic dose of a prostaglandin F2alpha analogue and the ovaries… CONTINUE READING
