• apoptosis
  • This study evaluated the levels of proliferative activity, angiogenesis, apoptosis and expression of cyclooxygenase-2 in the corpus luteum of female rats with thyroid dysfunction. (wiley.com)
  • In conclusion, thyroid dysfunction differentially affects the levels of proliferative activity, angiogenesis and apoptosis and COX-2 expression in the corpus luteum of female rats. (wiley.com)
  • steroidogenesis
  • Apparently to cope with the radicals produced by this system and by enhanced mitochondrial metabolism, the levels of antioxidant enzymes catalase and superoxide dismutase also increase in parallel with the enhanced steroidogenesis in the corpus luteum. (wikipedia.org)
  • lutropin
  • Plasma-membrane and soluble fractions containing human chorionic gonadotropin/lutropin receptor were prepared from bovine corpora lutea by ultracentrifugation. (biochemj.org)
  • occurs
  • Although thyroid dysfunction occurs frequently in humans and some animal species, the mechanisms by which hypo- and hyperthyroidism affect the corpus luteum have not been thoroughly elucidated. (wiley.com)
  • human
  • Yields of 0.02 and 0.22mg of protein were obtained from 250 g of bovine corpora lutea, which represents a 10000- and 1000-fold increase respectively in the specific binding with 125I-labelled human chorionic gonadotropin. (biochemj.org)
  • found
  • No histological evidence was found that multiple clutches were produced as indicated by, for example, corpora lutea from a previous clutch and concomitant yolk deposition for a subsequent clutch. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • increase
  • We hypothesized treating pregnant ewes with hCG would increase serum P4, number of corpora lutea (CLs) and concepti, augment steroidogenic enzymes, and increase membrane P4 receptors (PAQRs) and angiogenic factors in reproductive tissues. (sigmaaldrich.com)
