Luteal regression in the normally cycling rat: apoptosis, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1, and inflammatory cell involvement. (1/1885)

In hypophysectomized rats, prolactin induces regression of the corpora lutea. Luteal regression is accompanied by infiltration of monocytes/macrophages, declines in luteal mass and plasma progestins, and increased staining for monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1). We investigated whether similar events are induced during the estrous cycle, after the proestrous prolactin surge. Rats were killed on proestrus or on estrus, and one ovary was frozen for immunohistochemical detection of MCP-1, monocytes/macrophages (ED1-positive), and differentiated macrophages (ED2-positive) and for in situ detection of apoptotic nuclei. Corpora lutea of the current (proestrus) or preceding (estrus) cycle were dissected from the ovaries of additional rats and frozen for the same analyses and for determination of total protein content. In sections of whole ovaries, intensity and distribution of MCP-1 staining were increased in corpora lutea of multiple ages on estrus as compared to proestrus, as were numbers of differentiated macrophages and apoptotic nuclei per high-power field. Sections of isolated corpora lutea showed these increases on estrus, and the number of monocytes/macrophages per high-power field was also significantly increased. Accompanying these inflammatory/immune events, the corpora lutea on estrus showed decreased weight and total protein per corpus luteum, as compared to corpora lutea on proestrus. These changes are consistent with a proposed role for prolactin in the initiation of luteal apoptosis and of a sequence of inflammatory/immune events that accompany regression of the rat corpus luteum during the normal estrous cycle.  (+info)

Prolonged mating in prairie voles (Microtus ochrogaster) increases likelihood of ovulation and embryo number. (2/1885)

Prairie voles are induced ovulators that mate frequently in brief bouts over a period of approximately 24 h. We examined 1) impact of mating duration on ovulation and embryo number, 2) incidence of fertilization, 3) temporal pattern of embryo development, 4) embryo progression through the reproductive tract over time, and 5) embryo development in culture. Mating was videotaped to determine first copulation, and the ovaries were examined and the reproductive tracts flushed at 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 20, and 24 h and 2, 3, and 4 days after first copulation. The number of mature follicles and fresh corpora lutea and the number and developmental stage of embryos were quantified. One, two-, and four-cell embryos were cultured in Whitten's medium. Mature follicles were present at the earliest time examined (6 h). Thirty-eight percent of females that had been paired for < 12 h after the first copulation ovulated, whereas all females paired >/= 12 h after the first copulation ovulated. Virtually all (> 99%) oocytes recovered from females paired for >/= 12 h after first copulation were fertilized. Pairing time after first copulation and mean copulation-bout duration were significant (p < 0.05) determinants of embryo number. Embryos entered the uterine horns and implanted on Days 3 and 4, respectively, after first copulation (Day 0). Embryos cultured in vitro underwent approximately one cell division per day, a rate similar to that in vivo. We conclude that prairie voles ovulate reliably after pairing for >/= 12 h, although some females showed exceptional sensitivity not predicted by the variables quantified. Prolonged mating for longer than 12 h increased the total embryos produced. This mechanism likely has adaptive significance for increasing offspring number.  (+info)

Expression of oestrogen receptor alpha and beta mRNA in corpus luteum of human subjects. (3/1885)

To investigate the role of oestrogen receptor beta (ERbeta) in the function of human ovarian corpus luteum, the levels of luteal ERalpha and ERbeta mRNA were determined using competitive reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction-Southern blot analysis. The expression of ERalpha and ERbeta mRNA was detected in all luteal samples analysed. Luteal ERalpha and ERbeta mRNA levels were significantly lower (P<0.01 and P<0.05 respectively) at the late secretory phase than those at the early and mid-secretory phases of the endometrium. The ratio of ERalpha to ERbeta mRNA levels showed no change during the secretory phase of the endometrium. This study demonstrates that ERbeta is co-expressed with ERalpha in human corpus luteum and is likely to play a biological role in the regulation of steroidal action of the corpus luteum with ERalpha.  (+info)

Fas and Fas ligand messenger ribonucleic acid and protein expression in the rat corpus luteum during apoptosis-mediated luteolysis. (4/1885)

Apoptosis has been found to occur during regression of the corpus luteum (CL) in many species. The Fas (APO-1/CD95) receptor, a transmembrane protein that induces apoptosis in the cell when bound to Fas ligand (FasL), may be involved. This study established and quantitated the presence and regulation of Fas receptor and FasL in the rat CL during pregnancy and postpartum. Using immunohistochemistry, FasL was localized in CL during pregnancy and postpartum. Fas was localized at Day 1 of pregnancy and at the time of luteolysis. Both Fas and FasL mRNA were found to be expressed throughout pregnancy and postpartum using reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Relative quantitative RT-PCR established that expression of FasL mRNA increased significantly at Day 22 of pregnancy and decreased by Day 3 postpartum. Spontaneous apoptosis of rat CL placed in an in vitro culture model with serum-free medium was examined by analysis of extracted DNA using 3' end-labeling. Treatment with an anti-rat Fas monoclonal antibody demonstrated a reduction in the occurrence of spontaneous apoptosis. These data support a role for Fas receptor and FasL in rat CL apoptosis during luteolysis.  (+info)

A quantitative study of changes in the human corpus luteum microvasculature during the menstrual cycle. (5/1885)

Endothelial cells are the most abundant cell type in the corpus luteum (CL), and changes in blood vessels have been proposed to play a pivotal role in CL regression. We have studied quantitatively the changes in the human granulosa-luteal microvasculature in CL of various ages: young (Days 17-19 of the cycle), mature (Days 20-24), old (Days 25-27), early regressing (follicular phase of the following cycle), and late regressing (luteal phase of the following cycle). Blood vessels were identified by immunohistochemical staining for the endothelial cell marker CD34. Because of the anisotropy of blood vessels, both vertical and transverse sections of the granulosa-lutein layer (GLL) were used to estimate relative (volume, surface, and length densities) and absolute (mean cross-sectional area) vascular variables. Full luteinization from young to mature CL was accompanied by a 61% increase in the mean cross-sectional area of vascular profiles and a 52% increase in the mean volume of granulosa-lutein cells, as an estimator of changes in the volume of the GLL. In old and early regressing CL, there was a progressive increase in relative structural vascular variables, due to the shrinkage of the GLL, whereas the mean cross-sectional area of capillaries showed a 53% decrease from mature to old CL. Finally, in late regressing CL, there was a decrease in most relative structural variables, in spite of the increasingly shrunken GLL. The decrease in the capillary diameter found at the late luteal phase most likely leads to a decreased blood flow, and early changes in blood vessels could initiate and/or accelerate CL regression.  (+info)

A proposed sequence of hormones controlling the induction of luteal 20alpha-hydroxy steroid dehydrogenase and progesterone withdrawal in the late-pregnant rat. (6/1885)

1. The previously reported induction of luteal 20alpha-hydroxy steroid dehydrogenase by administration of aminoglutethimide to late-pregnant rats was shown to be unaffected by prior removal of the foetuses. Aminoglutethimide therefore does not act via the foetuses in this context. 2. The ability of injected oestrogen to prevent the above induction was lost by delaying the injection for 12h after aminoglutethimide, although the increase in enzyme activity begins only after 24h. 3. Induction of 20alpha-hydroxy steroid dehydrogenase by foetoplacental removal on day 18 of pregnancy was inhibited by human choriogonadotropin, lutropin (luteinizing hormone) and pregnant-mare serum gonadotropin, but not by somatotropin (growth hormone), thyrotropin or follitropin (follicle-stimulating hormone) 4. Indomethacin blocked the normal induction of 20alpha-hydroxy steroid dehydrogenase in late pregnancy and that caused by aminoglutethimide. It partially blocked that caused by human choriogonadotropin given on days 19-20 and that caused by 2-bromo-alpha-ergocryptine on days 5-6, but failed to block that caused by human choriogonadotropin on days 15-16 or by foetoplacental removal on day 18 of pregnancy. 5. These findings, and the control of progesterone synthesis in late pregnancy, are interpreted in terms of a sequence of hormonal or enzymic syntheses, each of which is inhibited by the product of the preceding synthesis.  (+info)

Accumulation of caspase-3 messenger ribonucleic acid and induction of caspase activity in the ovine corpus luteum following prostaglandin F2alpha treatment in vivo. (7/1885)

Caspase-3, a vertebrate homologue of the protein encoded by the Caenorhabditis elegans cell death gene, ced-3, induces apoptosis when overexpressed in eukaryotic cells. Since apoptosis occurs during corpus luteum (CL) regression in many species, including the ewe, these studies were conducted to 1) isolate a cDNA encoding ovine caspase-3, 2) measure steady state amounts of caspase-3 mRNA in the CL during luteolysis induced by prostaglandin F2alpha (PGF2alpha) and during the time of maternal recognition of pregnancy, and 3) measure changes in caspase activity during PGF2alpha-initiated luteal regression. Oligonucleotide primers corresponding to a human caspase-3 cDNA sequence were combined with total RNA from ovine CL in a reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction-based procedure to amplify a 640-base pair partial cDNA with a nucleotide sequence 86% and 81% identical to the human and rat caspase-3 cDNAs, respectively. CL were collected from ewes at 0, 12, or 24 h after treatment with PGF2alpha on Day 10 of the estrous cycle and from nonpregnant and pregnant ewes on Day 12 or Day 14 of the cycle. Northern blot analysis of total cellular RNA from ovine CL and a radiolabeled ovine caspase-3 cRNA probe indicated the presence of a single mRNA transcript of approximately 2.5 kilobases. Levels of caspase-3 mRNA were approximately 3-fold higher (p < 0.05) in CL at 12 h and 24 h after PGF2alpha in comparison to those levels measured in matched CL from untreated ewes. There were no differences (p > 0.05) in amounts of caspase-3 mRNA in CL on Day 12 or Day 14 of the estrous cycle compared to Day 12 or Day 14 of pregnancy, respectively. Caspase activity in CL (measured by the ability of CL lysates to cleave an artificial caspase substrate) was also significantly (p < 0.05) increased in CL collected after treatment with PGF2alpha compared to CL collected from nontreated ewes. We conclude that physiological cell death during PGF2alpha-induced luteal regression in the ewe is mediated, at least in part, via increased expression and activity of the caspase family of pro-apoptotic proteases.  (+info)

Angiotensin II interacts with prostaglandin F2alpha and endothelin-1 as a local luteolytic factor in the bovine corpus luteum in vitro. (8/1885)

Recent findings suggest that the ovarian renin-angiotensin system may regulate ovarian function through the paracrine/autocrine actions of angiotensin II (Ang II). In this study, we have examined and characterized the local effects of Ang II as a luteolytic factor and its interaction with prostaglandin F2alpha (PGF2alpha) and endothelin-1 (ET-1) in the bovine corpus luteum (CL) of the mid-luteal phase, by using an in vitro microdialysis system (MDS). Ang II was detected in the MDS perfusate (4 pg/ml), and infusion of PGF2alpha (10(-6) M) for 2 h increased the Ang II release by 50-100% during the following experimental period, in addition to its stimulation of ET-1 release. Two 2-h infusions of Ang II (10(-7)-10(-5) M) separated by a 2-h interval induced a dose- and time-dependent decrease of progesterone (P4) release by 41-66%. When the luteal explants were pre-perfused with PGF2alpha (10(-6) M) for 2 h, two consecutive perfusions of Ang II (10(-6) M) at a 2-h interval rapidly reduced the P4 release (by 50%). This reduction occurred 6 h earlier than those of infusions of PGF2alpha or Ang II alone. The simultaneous infusion of either 1) Ang II (10(-6) M) with PGF2alpha (10(-6) M), 2) ET-1 (10(-7) M) with PGF2alpha, or 3) Ang II + ET-1 with PGF2alpha (10(-6) M) for 2 h also induced a rapid and pronounced (60%) decrease in P4 release. Perfusion with the Ang II antagonist blocked the P4-suppressing activity of Ang II alone or PGF2alpha + Ang II infusion. Ang II stimulated the release of ET-1 and oxytocin during infusion but inhibited them after infusion. These results show that Ang II is released in the bovine midcycle CL in vitro, and this peptide, either alone or together with PGF2alpha, can suppress the release of P4. As PGF2alpha directly stimulated Ang II release, Ang II may influence the critical period for starting the cascade of functional luteolysis in vivo and might lead to structural luteolysis with ET-1 as a major vasoconstrictor. The overall results suggest that Ang II may have an important role at luteolysis in the bovine CL.  (+info)

Answer (1 of 1): A corpus luteum cyst is considered to be a functional, or simple, ovarian cyst. A corpus luteum cyst may develop after an egg has been released from the follicle. Ideally after the release of an egg, the follicle will become what is called the corpus luteum. If fertilization occurs and a pregnancy results, the corpus luteum will work in providing the young embryo with progesterone until the placenta can take over later in the first trimester. However, if pregnancy does not result the corpus luteum should shrink and dissolve. In some cases the corpus luteum will continue to grow and may fill with fluid or blood. It will then be considered to be a corpus luteum cyst. A corpus luteum cyst, although usually rather small, can continue to grow, sometimes causing much pain and discomfort. If the cyst does not dissolve on its own, which is often the case, a simple laparoscopic surgery, to remove the cyst, may be suggested.
A Corpus luteum cyst is a type of ovarian cyst which may rupture about the time of menstruation, and take up to three months to disappear entirely. A corpus luteum cyst rarely occurs at age 50+, because eggs are no longer being released in menopausal women. Corpus luteum cysts may contain blood and other fluids. The physical shape of a corpus luteum cyst may appear as an enlargement of the ovary itself, rather than a distinct mass -like growth on the surface of the ovary. This type of functional cyst occurs after an egg has been released from a follicle. The follicle then becomes a secretory gland that is known as the corpus luteum. The ruptured follicle begins producing large quantities of estrogen and progesterone in preparation for conception. If a pregnancy doesnt occur, the corpus luteum usually breaks down and disappears. It may, however, fill with fluid or blood, causing the corpus luteum to expand into a cyst, and stay in the ovary. Usually, this cyst is on only one side, and does not ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The function and regulation of the primate corpus luteum during the fertile menstrual cycle.. AU - Stouffer, Richard. AU - Ottobre, J. S.. AU - Molskness, T. A.. AU - Zelinski, Mary. PY - 1989. Y1 - 1989. N2 - Figure 2 summarizes the changes in endocrine function and the factors which regulate the primate corpus luteum during the fertile menstrual cycle. The classical luteotropic role of LH during the menstrual cycle is superceded by CG at or before the time of implantation. The role of local factors in modulating luteal function is an area of continued research, as some factors are deemed less important (i.e., estrogen, at least prior to luteal rescue) and other possibilities (progesterone, prostaglandins, and relaxin) arise. The role of local factors has not yet been studied in the corpus luteum following its rescue in early pregnancy. Finally, it is apparent that a different type of shift precedes the recognized luteal-placental shift in early pregnancy, when the corpus ...
MiR-29b affects the secretion of PROG and promotes the proliferation of bovine corpus luteum cells[3] The regulatory role of miRNAs has been explored in ovarian cells, and their effects on gonadal development, apoptosis, ovulation, steroid production and corpus luteum (CL) development have been revealed. In this study, we analyzed the expression of miR-29b at different stages of bovine CL development and predicted the target genes of miR-29b. We confirmed that miR-29b reduces the expression of the oxytocin receptor (OXTR), affects progesterone (PROG) secretion and regulates the function of the CL. RT-PCR showed that the expression of miR-29b was significantly higher in functional CL phases than in the regressed CL phase. Immunohistochemistry showed that OXTR was expressed in both large and small CL cells and was mainly located in the cell membrane and cytoplasm of these cells. We analyzed the expression levels of OXTR and found that transfection with a miR-29b mimic decreased OXTR expression, ...
OpenPagesTop}} ==Introduction== Corpus Luteum is latin for yellow body. The corpus luteum is the structure formed during luteinisation of the follicle after ovulation. The corpus luteum is, however, actually only yellow in the cow and in all other domestic species it is red. The yellow colouration of the corpus luteum is due to the pigment, lutein. ==Structure== There are two types of luteal cells present within the corpus luteum: 1. Small luteal cells (,20µm) Small luteal cells are formed from remodelled follicular theca cells. These cells proliferate during luteinisation. Small luteal cells contain many lipid droplets within their cytoplasm, which is an important source of cholesterol esters for [[Ovaries_Endocrine_Function_- Anatomy & Physiology#Progesterone,progesterone]] synthesis. 2. Large luteal cells (20-40µm) Large luteal cells are formed from follicular granulosa cells that have undergone hypertrophy. These large luteal cells are the endocrine cells of ...

AU - Acosta, Tomas J.. AU - Skarzynski, Dariusz J.. PY - 2007/6/1. Y1 - 2007/6/1. N2 - Although prostaglandin (PG) F2α is considered as the principal luteolytic factor, its action on the bovine corpus luteum (CL) is mediated by other intraovarian factors. Among them, nitric oxide (NO) seems to play a mandatory role in luteolysis. In this article we review the background and current status of work on possible roles of NO in the CL function, based on available information and our own experimental data. NO is produced in all three main types of bovine CL cells: steroidogenic, endothelial and immune cells. PGF2α and some luteolytic cytokines (tumor necrosis factor, interferon) increase NO production and stimulate NO synthase expression in the bovine CL. NO inhibits progesterone production, stimulates the secretion of ...

Progesterone and oxytocin were associated with particles which sedimented to a density of 1.049-1.054 g/ml and 1.054-1.061 g/ml respectively. Particle-associated progesterone did not, however, display physical or biochemical characteristics consistent with its storage within secretory granules. When particle-associated progesterone was incubated in HEPES buffer at 37°C, 70% of the total progesterone was recovered in the incubation medium. The remaining stable particle-associated progesterone was not affected by treatments which stimulated oxytocin release and which have been shown to cause the release of peptides and biogenic amines from ...
Thus, it turns out that the corpus luteum in the ovary is formed in the body of a woman every month, and every month resolved.Its perfectly normal to experience and because of this is meaningless.However, there is a likelihood that in case of pregnancy, the corpus luteum does not resolve, and continue to produce progesterone, or after pregnancy the corpus luteum will continue to grow.In this case we speak of the corpus luteum cyst.. cystic corpus luteum usually has a larger than usual size.In this case, the symptoms are the same as during pregnancy: delayed menstruation, nagging feeling in the stomach, its all a result of the work of the hormone.However, pregnancy test gives a negative result.However, most of this state and is not at risk, even during pregnancy.. However, a cyst could still be a problem, if it is too large.In this case, the cyst may burst as a result of mechanical action.For example, if a large impact or physical exertion.And it is internal bleeding, ie the state, threatening ...

Evidence as to the precise role of the corpus luteum during pregnancy is contradictory, especially when different species are compared. Most observers agree that the presence of the corpus luteum is necessary during the early stages of gestation. During the second half of pregnancy, however, the removal of the corpus luteum in certain animals does not lead to immediate abortion. In the guinea-pig Loeb and Hesselberg (1917), Herrick (1928) and Courrier, Kehl and Raynaud (1929) have found that pregnancy may continue for some weeks after double ovariectomy, and Ash-Upmark (1926) has listed a large number of clinical cases in which ovariectomy in women has not disturbed pregnancy. The evidence for the rabbit (summarised by Hammond, 1925), is slightly contradictory, but tends to show that the corpus luteum is necessary during the whole of pregnancy, although this was not the conclusion of Niskoubina (1909). In the rat it appears that double ovariectomy towards the end of pregnancy does not always ...

Hypoxia is an important physiological process which ensures corpus luteum (CL) formation and development, thus playing an important role in steroidogenesis. Recent studies have shown that CL develops in an analogous to tumorigenesis by accumulation of hypoxia-inducible factor-1 alpha subunit (HIF1A) in response to hypoxia. To investigate the relationship among hypoxia, steroidogenesis, and cell proliferation during CL lifespan, histological and steroidogenic analyses of CL were performed at various CL stages in non-pregnant Holstein. Also, the hypoxia-mediated steroidogenesis and cell proliferation were studied in vitro with both primary luteal and luteinized granulosa cells. Our results showed that progesterone (P(4)) concentration increased with the upregulation of steroidogenic protein including steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (STAR) and CYP11A1 (P450scc) in the middle luteal stage. On the other hand, the cell proliferation- or hypoxia-associated proteins were upregulated in the early ...

The development of the corpus luteum (CL), which secretes large amounts of progesterone to establish pregnancy, is accompanied by active angiogenesis, vascularization, and lymphangiogenesis. Negative feedback regulation is a critical physiological mechanism. Vasohibin-1 (VASH1) was recently discovered as a novel endothelium-derived negative feedback regulator of vascularization. We therefore investigated the expression of VASH1 in the bovine CL. Expression of VASH1 mRNA and protein was predominantly localized to luteal endothelial cells (LECs). VASH1 expression in the CL was constant through the early to late luteal phases and decreased during CL regression relating with the action of luteolytic prostaglandin F(2)(α) in vivo. To investigate the role of VASH1, we determined whether VASH1 treatment affects angiogenesis and/or lymphangiogenesis using LECs and lymphatic endothelial cells (LyECs) in vitro. Vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGFA) stimulated the expression of VASH1 in LECs but ...

When the dominant antral follicle ovulates, slight localised haemorrhage occurs at the site of ovulation and fills the former cavity. The small amount of bloody tissue can be observed by the naked eye. Loss of fluid from the antral cavity causes the follicle to collapse into many folds. As a result, some granulosal and thecal layers are pushed into the apex of the ruptured follicle. The protrusion of tissue and ruptured blood vessels forms a structure known as the corpus haemorrhagicum. Following this, the theca interna and granulosa cells differentiate into large and small luteal cells. Luteal cells contain increased quantities of lipid droplets and the pigment lutein. As the blood is resorbed, a solid corpus luteum is formed by proliferation of granulosa and theca intera cells as well as blood vessels. This remains on the surface of the ovary. In the non-pregnant animal, corpora lutea are transient structures. Cyclic corpora lutea undergo proliferation and vascularisation directly after ...

N2 - In mated sows, corpus luteum (CL) function is important for the establishment of the pregnancy. The maximum CL size is established at day 8 - 9 of the pregnancy and maintained autonomous until day 12. Then, CL maintenance will depend on hormones such as LH and PGF2α. PGF2α is released from the endometrium at day 14 and triggers CL regression. This regression can be prevented in pregnant sows due to estradiol production from the attaching conceptuses; which decreases endocrine PGF2α release.We hypothesized that a negative CL development between day 12 and 13 has a negative effect on the pregnancy rate in mated sows and on litter size in pregnant sows.. AB - In mated sows, corpus luteum (CL) function is important for the establishment of the pregnancy. The maximum CL size is established at day 8 ...

Corpus luteum cysts. Once the follicle breaks open and releases the egg, the empty follicle sac shrinks into a mass of cells called corpus luteum. Corpus luteum makes hormones to prepare for the next egg for the next menstrual cycle. Corpus luteum cysts form if the sac doesnt shrink. Instead, the sac reseals itself after the egg is released, and then fluid builds up inside. Most corpus luteum cysts go away after a few weeks. But, they can grow to almost four inches wide. They also may bleed or twist the ovary and cause pain. Some medicines used to cause ovulation can raise the risk of getting these cysts ...
Prostaglandin F2α. Prostaglanin is a C2O fatty acid and is produced within the uterine endometrium and vesicular glands. Estradiol stimulates prostaglandin synthesis while progesterone inhibits it. The target tissue in the female is the corpus luteum, uterine myometrium and ovulatory follicles. In the female PGF2α cause luteolysis and can also cause the induction of tone and contractions within the uterus. It plays an important role in partuition in ruminants.. If a pregnancy is to remain viable then luteolysis needs to be avoided and this is achieved where concentrations of PGF2α remain below a threshold level allowing the corpus luteum to continue to secrete progesterone and thus maintain pregnancy. There are two main factors involved in the regulation of uterine secretions of PGF2α; oxytocin secretions from the corpus luteum and molecules secreted by the developing embryo that facilitate the maternal recognition of pregnancy.. Oxytocin secretion via the corpus luteum stimulates ...

To examine these changes, seventy-four ovaries containing a CL were collected from Anglo-Norman mares at a local abattoir in Kumamoto, Japan (~N32°), five times during one year. The stages of the CLs were classified as early, mid and regressed by macroscopic observation of the CL and follicles. The mid CL, which had the highest P4 concentration, was used to evaluate the seasonal changes in P4 synthesis. The luteal P4 concentration and mRNA expression of luteinizing hormone receptor (LHCGR) were ...
After ovulation we enter the Luteal phase (Day 14-28) where here we observe that the surge of Luteinising Hormone (LH) has come and gone, and we are left with relatively steady levels of FSH and LH. However what you will note on the graph above is that progesterone levels have increased dramatically from around day 15 to 25 and this correlates with the rise in basal body temperature/basal metabolic rate (by-product of increased progesterone levels/ovulation) as well as the transition of the ruptured ovarian follicle that released the oocyte to the corpus luteum. Thus it is the corpus luteum that under the influence of Luteinising Hormone secretes and is responsible for the high progesterone levels. Interesting to note that the corpus luteum also secretes a hormone called inhibin which inhibits the anterior pituitary from further secreting Follicle stimulating hormone. Now the main effects of progesterone as secreted by the corpus luteum, is to increase blood vessel growth (vascularisation) in ...
This study reports a number of key findings. Both the mass and P4-synthesising capacity of a CL formed following induced ovulation of a first-wave DF (i.e. CLs from group B in this study) were reduced relative to a CL formed following spontaneous ovulation (i.e. CLs from group A). Indeed, the P4 synthetic capacity of these induced (i.e. group B) CLs was similar to that of a regressing CL (i.e. group C) during the pro-oestrous phase of the cycle and, at a molecular level, they were characterised as having reduced expression of steroidogenic enzymes (i.e. STAR and HSD3B1) involved in cholesterol transfer into mitochondria and conversion of pregnenolone to progesterone. These induced CLs were further characterised as having reduced expression of LHCGR (required for luteal support; Niswender et al. 2007) and VEGFA (a key angiogenic regulator; Robinson et al. 2007), together with increased expression of BMP2 (linked to luteolysis in regressing CLs; Nio-Kobayashi et al. 2015).. Regarding follicular ...
Recent studies suggest that chemokines may mediate the luteolytic action of PGF2α (PGF). Our objective was to identify chemokines induced by PGF in vivo and to determine the effects of IL8 on specific luteal cell types in vitro. Midcycle cows were injected with saline or PGF, ovaries were removed after 0.5 - 4 h and chemokine expression was analyzed by qPCR. In vitro expression of IL8 was analyzed after PGF administration and with cell signaling inhibitors to determine the mechanism of PGF-induced chemokine expression. Purified neutrophils were analyzed for migration and activation in response to IL8 and PGF. Purified luteal cell types (steroidogenic, endothelial and fibroblast cells) were used to identify which cells respond to chemokines. Neutrophils and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were co-cultured with steroidogenic cells to determine their effect on progesterone production. IL8, CXCL2, CCL2, and CCL8 transcripts were rapidly increased following PGF treatment in vivo and. The

1. What factor do the syncytiotrophoblast cells secrete to support the ongoing pregnancy? Shortly after implantation of the blastocyst within the endometrium, the syncytiotrophoblast cells secrete the hormone human Chorionic Gonadotopin (hCG) which stimulates the corpus luteum. hCG supports the ongoing pregnancy by stimulating the corpus luteum to produce increased levels of the essential progesterone and estrogen hormones, thereby preventing menstruation and proliferation of the endometrium. hCG is continually secreted throughout the pregnancy however only at low levels for the final half of the pregnancy. 2. What does the corpus luteum secrete to prevent continuation of the menstrual cycle? The corpus luteum secretes both progesterone and estrogen, however it is primarily the elevated levels of progesterone that maintain stimulation of the endometrial cells. ...

1. Sepharose 6B gel-filtration analysis of soluble adenylate cyclase from bovine corpus luteum is described. Both zonal and frontal techniques of analysis were used. 2. Under conditions of zonal analysis recoveries of activity were low. It was concluded that dissociation of two or more components of the adenylate cyclase complex was occurring on the column and that the maintenance of the complex was essential for the high-activity state of the catalytic unit. Two peaks of adenylate cyclase activity, of approximate mol. wts. 45,000 and 160,000 were detected. 3. The theory of frontal analysis (or steady-state gel filtration), applied to the study of the interacting components of the adenylate cyclase complex is discussed, and activity profiles are predicted. Activity profiles obtained experimentally be frontal analysis compared well with the theoretically predicted profile and provide evidence that dissociation of a high-activity complex, with concomitant loss of activity, does occur. Recoveries ...
The expression of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GNRH) receptor (GNRHR) and the direct role of GNRH1 on corpora lutea function were studied in Mediterranean buffalo during diestrus. Immunohistochemistry evidenced at early, mid, and late luteal stages the presence of GNRHR only in large luteal cells and GNRH1 in both small and large luteal cells. Real-time-PCR revealed GNRHR and GNRH1 mRNA at the three luteal stages, with lowest values in late corpora lutea. In vitro corpora lutea progesterone production was greater in mid stages and less in late luteal phases, while prostaglandin (PG) F2alpha (PGF2alpha) increased from early to late stages, and PGE2 was greater in the earlier-luteal phase. Cyclooxygenase 1 (prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase 1, PTGS1) activity did not change during diestrus, while PTGS2 increased from early to late stages, and PGE2-9-ketoreductase (PGE2-9-K) was greater in late corpora lutea. PTGS1 activity was greater than PTGS2 in early corpora lutea and less in late luteal ...
The corpus luteum (CL) is a temporary organ involved in the maintenance of pregnancy. In the course of its life-cycle, the CL undergoes two distinct and consecutive processes for its inevitable removal through apoptosis: functional and structural luteolysis. We isolated a gene encoding for a novel rat zinc finger protein (ZFP), named rat ZFP96 (rZFP96) from an ovarian lambda cDNA library. Sequence analysis revealed close sequence and structural similarity to mouse ZFP96 and human zinc finger protein 305 (ZNF305). Quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction analysis revealed a positive correlation with the end of pregnancy, that is, the onset of structural luteolysis of the CL. Messenger RNA levels increased 3-fold (P < 0.01) between days 13 and 22 of pregnancy and 8-fold (P < 0.01) between day 13 of pregnancy and day 1 post-partum. In addition, we detected rZFP96 expression in mammary, placenta, heart, kidney and skeletal muscle. Sequence analysis predicted that rZFP96 has a ...
The present study was undertaken to assess the relative effects of collection techniques and presence or absence of corpus luteum (CL) on recovery efficiency and oocyte quality for in vitro studies of goat oocytes. Cumulus-oocyte-complexes (COCs) were collected from slaughter house goat ovaries by aspiration, puncture and slicing methods. Following collection, oocyte qualities were classified into normal and abnormal group on the basis of cumulus attachment. The mean number of oocytes recovered per ovary was significantly (P,0.05) higher in slicing (5.34±0.35) than that of puncture (4.15±0.23) and aspiration (3.56±0.15) technique. The normal grade oocyte per ovary was significantly (P,0.05) higher in aspiration (54.78%) and in puncture (54.70%) method than slicing (30.71%)). Furthermore, the oocyte recovery was significantly lower (P,0.05) in CL containing ovaries (2.02±0.23) than that of ovaries without CL (4.92±0.27). It was observed that significantly (p,0.05) higher number of ...
These changes centre about a follicle, or egg sac. A new follicle develops after each menstrual period, casts off an egg (ovulation), and, after ovulation, forms a new structure (the corpus luteum). If the egg is fertilized, it is sustained for a short time by the hormones produced by the corpus luteum. Progesterone and estrogen, secreted by the corpus luteum, are essential for the preservation of the pregnancy during its early months. If pregnancy does not occur, the egg disintegrates and the corpus luteum shrinks. As it shrinks, the stimulating effect of its hormones, progesterone and estrogen, is withdrawn from the endometrium (the lining of the uterus), and menstruation occurs.. The cycle then begins again. Pregnancy, if it occurs, maintains the corpus luteum by means of the hormones produced by the young placenta. The corpus luteum is not essential in human pregnancy after the first few weeks because of the takeover of its functions by the placenta. In fact, human pregnancies have gone on ...
Abstract Interference with the pregnancy-maintaining influence of progesterone is the basis of most methods for termination of unwanted pregnancy in dogs. The currently available methods are based on induction of luteolysis or blocking of the progesterone receptor. Inhibition of progesterone synthesis using a competitive inhibitor of 3 -hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3 ... read more -HSD) could be another strategy to terminate unwanted pregnancies. In this study we investigated the effects of the 3 -HSD inhibitor trilostane on corpus luteum function in non-pregnant bitches. Trilostane was administered orally for seven consecutive days in either the pituitary-independent part of the luteal phase (PIP, start of treatment on D11 after ovulation, n 6) or the pituitary-dependent part (PDP, start of treatment on D31 after ovulation, n 6), in an oral dose of about 4.5 mg/kg bw, twice daily. Results were compared with those obtained in control bitches (n 6). ACTH stimulation tests were performed to ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The secretion of transforming growth factor-beta by bovine luteal cells in vitro. AU - Gangrade, Bhushan K.. AU - Gotcher, Elisa D.. AU - Davis, John S.. AU - May, Jeffrey V.. PY - 1993/6. Y1 - 1993/6. N2 - Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β), a multifunctional polypeptide growth factor, is produced by follicular cells in the ovary. However, there is little information indicating that TGF-β is produced in the post-ovulatory follicle, i.e. the corpus luteum. In the present communication we present evidence that bovine luteal cells secrete large amounts of TGF-β when maintained in moderate-term monolayer culture. Using TGF-β1 and TGF-β2 subtype-specific antibodies to neutralize the bioactivity it was found that 80-90% TGF-β activity in luteal cell conditioned medium (LCCM) is due to TGF-β1, whereas ≤ 10% TGF-β activity in LCCM is due to TGF-β2. TGF-β subtype nonspecific antibodies effectively and completely neutralized all TGF-β activity in LCCM. The ratio of ...

Mitochondria are essential to the process of cell respiration and steroidogenesis. Both of these processes impact the viability of the corpus luteum, which is required to maintain early pregnancy. In cattle and other species, progesterone supports gestation, regulates embryogenesis and works in concert with estrogen to maintain the reproductive tract. Many investigators have sought to understand the processes that control regression of the corpus luteum. Two prostaglandins, PGF2a and PGE2, have been implicated in the functioning of this transient gland. It is accepted by most researchers that the primary luteolysin responsible for functional and structural demise of the corpus luteum is PGF2a. However, there is ambiguity between reported effects of PGF2a and PGE2 on whole cells and on animals in vivo. Therefore, the specific effects of these prostaglandins on oxygen consumption and progesterone secretion in mitochondria isolated from bovine corpora lutea are the focus of this dissertation.

HCG is a hormone that is produced by the placenta. It is detectable in the blood and urine within 10 days after fertilization. After implantation of the fertilized egg, the levels of HCG rise rapidly in the first trimester and reach a peak 60 to 80 days after implantation. HCG is thought to be important in converting the normal corpus luteum into the corpus luteum of pregnancy. The corpus luteum is a hormone-secreting structure that grows on the surface of the ovary after ovulation takes place. In pregnancy, functions of the corpus luteum include ...
The present study aimed to evaluate whether the induction and the formation of an accessory corpus luteum (CL) after AI might increase the pregnancy per AI (P/AI) in heat stressed dairy cows. Starting at d 50±3 post-partum, 113 lactating Holstein cows from one commercial herd during summer were scored for body condition, blood sampled and examined by ultrasound. Those bearing a CL,25mm and progesterone (P4) level,2ng/mL were synchronized using a double PGF2α injection given 12 h apart and AI-ed at detected estrus. In total 18 cows, there were not any signs of estrus (n=10) nor a P4 level ,2ng/mL at the time of enrolment (n=8) and therefore they were excluded from the study, leading to 95 cows finally enrolled.. At d5 post-AI, cows were randomly allocated into 2 groups: control group (CON, n=45) without any additional treatment, and treatment group (GnRH, n=50), treated with 0.008 mg Buserelin - a GnRH agonist. Blood sampling and ultrasound examination were done at d5, d14 and at d21 after AI, ...
The objective of this study was to compare the effect of human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) and gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) administration on day 5 after artificial insemination (AI) on luteal function. Thirty-three dairy cows were synchronized by the Ovsynch protocol and assigned randomly into 3 equal groups to receive on day 5 after AI 1500UI hCG, 100µg GnRH, and 2mL saline solution (Control), respectively. progesterone concentration (P4) in blood was measured every 3 days from day 5 to 23 after timed AI. Ultrasound examination of ovaries was performed on days -10, 0 (day of AI), 2, 5, 8, 11 and 14. The results revealed a development of an accessory corpus luteum(CL), 100% in the group received GnRH and 90.9% in that received hCG. No accessory corpus luteum in control group was observed. Total luteal tissue area on the ovaries was increased in hCG and GnRH group compared to control. Plasma P4 concentration was significantly (P , 0.05) higher in hCG and GnRH groups than control ...

The effects of hypo-and hyperthyroidism on proliferation, apoptosis and expression of angiogenic factors and COX-2 in the corpus luteum among the pregnant rats in this study were distinct.. Hypothyroidism significantly reduced the proliferation rate in the corpus luteum, both of luteal cells and of endothelial cells and pericytes. This result demonstrates that thyroid hypofunction affects not only the mitotic activity of the luteal cells of pregnant rats but also of the vascular cells. On the other hand, the corpus luteum of hyperthyroid animals showed an increased proliferative activity of the endothelial cells and pericytes at 14 days of gestation, suggesting the role of thyroid hormones on luteal angiogenesis. This is in agreement with Macchiarelli et al. [41] who observed that thyroid hormones stimulate the luteal angiogenesis. Our result is important because deficiency in luteal angiogenesis has been reported to substantially contribute to subfertility [17], and hypothyroidism in women ...

A complex hormonal process orchestrates ovulation and governs the menstrual cycle. The cycle begins in the brain, where the hypothalamus gland sends out a hormone that instructs the pituitary gland to produce luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone. These hormones help launch the follicular phase of the cycle, during which several follicles and their eggs begin to mature. Several egg-bearing follicles start the journey, but only one will fully ripen and make it across the ovarian finish line.. At ovulation, the egg ruptures the follicle as it emerges from the ovary. The follicle then transforms into a corpus luteum, and begins to secrete progesterone to help prepare the uterus for implantation of the fertilized egg. If conception does not occur, the corpus luteum deteriorates in two weeks - the time of menstruation. But if there is a pregnancy, the corpus luteum continues secreting progesterone as well as another hormone for the first two trimesters. After that point, the fetus ...

Figure 2: Hormonal development during oestrus cycle.. Out of these, Progesterone has been chosen to be analysed by Herd Navigator™ because it is the one that can provide the most information about the reproductive status of the cow throughout the whole lactation.. After calving the cow has no ovarian activity (anoestrus) and will not produce any progesterone. After some weeks the cow will start ovarian activity, will show heat signs and ovulate. After the ovulation the corpus luteum will be formed in the ovary and start producing Progesterone. Progesterone production will cease when the cow is approaching a new heat and will restart again after the new ovulation. This cycle is repeated every 18 to 24 days until the cow becomes pregnant. In this case the corpus luteum will continue producing Progesterone to maintain the pregnancy (Figure 3). Progesterone production will continue until calving unless the cow aborts, in this case Progesterone production will stop.. ...

For cyclic and pregnant ewes, endometrium was collected on days 10, 12, 14, or 16 post-oestrus (4 ewes/day for each status) for the measurement of ER and PR mRNA and protein. The amount of receptor mRNA is expressed in relative units above back-ground, measured from radiographs of dot-blot hybridization of total endometrial RNA with ER and PR cDNAs. At hysterectomy, jugular vein blood samples were collected and assayed for progesterone, total corpus luteum weight was recorded and, in vitro, endometrial ...
Until recently, most estrous synchronization of dairy cows was performed using PGF2α or analogues (Lutalyse or Estrumate). These compounds cause the regression of the corpus luteum (CL), the expression of estrous behavior and ovulation of a follicle 2-5 days after administration. In order for PGF2α to act on a cow, she must have a functional CL on an ovary. The exact time from PGF2α administration until estrus depends on the population of follicles on the ovary. If there are no large follicles on the ovary, it will take more time for them to develop. Since all cows will not be in the same stage of the estrous cycle when injected with PGF2α, they will show estrus at different times after injection of PGF2α. The Targeted BreedingTM (Pharmacia-Upjohn, Kalamazoo, MI) scheme uses additional synchronization doses of PGF2α to produce cows that are in the middle of the estrous cycles that all have dominant CLs (2 weeks after estrus). Cows at this stage give the most consistent response to a ...
One major contribution of the corpus-based approach to language study is the facility with which linguists can access large amounts of data and search for regularities across text types and varieties of English on the basis of observed frequencies. Such regularities of features, if based on well-designed and/or specialised corpora, can be useful for classroom activities and material design. This chapter describes the basic steps involved in corpus design and corpus exploitation. Section 1 defines the corpus and briefly states the relevance of investigating English second language (ESL) varieties via a corpus. Section 2 describes key steps involved in simple corpus compilation and how students can compile their own corpora for research. Section 3 presents results of two studies on the frequency and use of modals in the corpus of Cameroonian English. These results are intended to illustrate the point that the corpus approach is indispensable if certain types of linguistic information are investigated in a

Felids generally follow a poly-estrous reproductive strategy. Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) display a different pattern of reproductive cyclicity where physiologically persistent corpora lutea (CLs) induce a mono-estrous condition which results in highly seasonal reproduction. The present study was based around a sono-morphological and endocrine study of captive Eurasian lynx, and a control-study on free-ranging lynx. We verified that CLs persist after pregnancy and pseudo-pregnancy for at least a two-year period. We could show that lynx are able to enter estrus in the following year, while CLs from the previous years persisted in structure and only temporarily reduced their function for the period of estrus onset or birth, which is unique among felids. The almost constant luteal progesterone secretion (average of 5 ng/ml serum) seems to prevent folliculogenesis outside the breeding season and has converted a poly-estrous general felid cycle into a mono-estrous cycle specific for lynx. The hormonal

Your baby will change dramatically in appearance during this early part of the pregnancy.. Before 5 weeks gestation, the developing pregnancy is too small to detect on ultrasound. The endometrium (the lining of the uterus where the pregnancy will grow) should appear thick and secretory. One of the ovaries will have an ovulation cyst called a haemorrhagic corpus luteum. This ovarian cyst is a normal part of getting pregnant, as the egg forming your baby was released from this cyst. The corpus luteum will gradually resolve (get smaller) as the pregnancy continues.. At 5-6 weeks gestation, a small gestation (pregnancy) sac is seen within the uterus. A transvaginal ultrasound is usually required to see the baby at this stage of the pregnancy. Your baby is just a tiny embryo. Although the ultrasound may see your baby, it measures only a few millimetres long, and it is too early to always detect the babys heartbeat. You should not be concerned if we cannot see the babys heartbeat at this early ...

The ability of antibodies generated by the vaccine Pr-β-HCG-TT in two species of animals to neutralize the biological activity of HCG has been investigated. The antisera from an immunized goat and serveral rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) abolished the HCG induced rise in ventral prostate weight of immature male rats and of uterine weight in prepubertal mice. These were also found to be effective in preventing the binding of 125I-HCG to receptors in rat testes and goat corpora lutea preparations. The antisera also blocked the HCG induced synthesis and secretion of progesterone in corpus luteum slices in vitro. These investigations show that the antibodies elicited by the conjugate (Pr-β-HCG-TT) form a complex with HCG, which is biologically inactive. ...
Abstract: The effect of hCG administration on accessory corpus luteum (ACL) formation, CL area, and plasma progesterone (P4) concentration (ng/mL) seven days after breeding was studied in nulliparous Santa Inês sheep. Intravaginal 60 mg MAP sponges were inserted into ewes for six days and 300 IU eCG i.m. and 30 ?g d-cloprostenol latero-vulvar were administered 24 h before sponge removal. Ewes were naturally bred and, seven days after first mating (Day 0; D0), were treated with either 250 IU hCG (hCG group; n = 7) or 1 mL saline solution (control group; n = 7). Blood was collected to determine plasma P4 concentrations and sonograms were performed on Days 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, and 22. Number of CL on D7 was similar (P , 0.05) between hCG (1.3 ± 0.5) and ...
Software corpora facilitate reproducibility of analyses, however, static analysis for an entire corpus still requires considerable effort, often duplicated unnecessarily by multiple users. Moreover, most corpora are designed for single languages increasing the effort for cross-language analysis. To address these aspects we propose Pangea, an infrastructure allowing fast development of static analyses on multi-language corpora. Pangea uses language-independent meta-models stored as object model snapshots that can be directly loaded into memory and queried without any parsing overhead. To reduce the effort of performing static analyses, Pangea provides out-of-the box support for: creating and refining analyses in a dedicated environment, deploying an analysis on an entire corpus, using a runner that supports parallel execution, and exporting results in various formats. In this tool demonstration we introduce Pangea and provide several usage scenarios that illustrate how it reduces the cost of ...
Selain itu, LH merangsang folikel yang telah kosong untuk berubah menjadi badan kuning (Corpus Luteum). Badan kuning menghasilkan hormon progesteron yang berfungsi mempertebal lapisan endometrium yang kaya dengan pembuluh darah untuk mempersiapkan datangnya embrio. Periode ini disebut fase luteal, selain itu progesteron juga berfungsi menghambat pembentukan FSH dan LH, akibatnya korpus luteum mengecil dan menghilang, pembentukan progesteron berhenti sehingga pemberian nutrisi kepada endometriam terhenti, endometrium menjadi mengering dan selanjutnya akan terkelupas dan terjadilah perdarahan (menstruasi) pada hari ke-28. Fase ini disebut fase perdarahan atau fase menstruasi. Oleh karena tidak ada progesteron, maka FSH mulai terbentuk lagi dan terjadilan proses oogenesis kembali. ...
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is also known as the pregnancy hormone as it is produced once a woman becomes pregnant. It can be detected both in the urine and in the blood, is produced by the early placenta and keeps the corpus luteum producing progesterone when conception occurs. The purpose of hCG is to keep estrogen and progesterone at their appropriate levels until the placenta has developed enough to take over this function. ...

Hsin-Hung Lin, Chih-Hua Wang, Shann-Ren Kang, Wen-Lin Song, Chin-Hui Tseng, Mu-Jung Cheng, Shyh-Shyan Liu, and Perng-Chih Shen. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of different eCG concentrations on the efficacy of superovulation in Formosan Sambar does. All the does were implanted with CIDR for 12 days and superovulation was induced by intramuscularly injection with different concentrations of eCG at day 10. Embryos were collected by flushing the oviduct through midventral laparotomy at day 4 after mating. Results showed that the corpus luteum (CL) numbers of dose superovulated with 1500 (7.3), 2000 (10.6), 3000 (8.5) IU of eCG were significantly higher than that superovulated with 1000 IU of eCG (3.5). However, the embryo recovery rates of dose superovulated with 1000 (85.7%) and 1500 (62.0%) IU of eCG were significantly higher than those superovulated with 2000 (25.5%) and 3000 ...

Humani horionski gonadotropin interaguje sa LHCG receptorom i promoviše corpus luteum održavanje tokom početka trudnoće. hCG izaziva sekreciju hormona progesterona iz njega. Progesteron obogaćuje matericu sa debelim oblogom krvnih sudova i kapilara, tako da ona može da održava rastući fetus. Usled njegovog visoko negativnog naelektrisanja, hCG može da odbije imunske ćelije majke, čime štiti fetus tokom prvog tromesečja. Takođe se pretpostavlja da hCG može da bude materična veza za razvoj lokalne maternje imunotolerancije. Na primer, endometrialne ćelije tretirane hCG-om uzrokuju povišenje T ćelijske apoptoze. Ti rezultati sugerišu da hCG može da bude veza u razvoju peritrofoblastne imunske tolerancije, i da on može da olakša invaziju trofoblasta, za šta je poznato da ubrzava fetalni razvoj u endometrijumu.[3] Predloženo je da su hCG nivoi povezani sa ozbiljnošću jutarnje mučnine kod trudnih žena.[4] ...
