Control of steroidogenesis in small and large bovine luteal cells

, : Control of steroidogenesis in small and large bovine luteal cells. Australian Journal of Biological Sciences 40(3): 331-347

It was shown that prostacylin (PGI2) plays a luteotropic role in the bovine corpus luteum and that products of the lipoxygenase pathway of arachidonic acid metabolism, especially 5-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid play luteolytic roles. Oxytocin of luteal cell origin plays a role in development, and possibly in regression, of the bovine corpus luteum. Luteal cells arise from 2 sources. The characteristic small luteal cells are of theca cell origin.
