Differential regulation of apoptosis in the corpus luteum of pregnancy and newly formed corpus luteum after parturition in rats

Differential regulation of apoptosis in the corpus luteum of pregnancy and newly formed corpus luteum after parturition in rats

Biology of Reproduction 70(2): 313-318

Apoptosis contributes to luteal regression in many species. In the postpartum rat, there are two different types of corpora lutea (CL) in the ovary: CL of pregnancy (CLP) and newly formed CL (NCL). To investigate the regulation of apoptosis in the two different types of CL during luteal regression, apoptosis and caspase-3 activity were examined in the CL obtained on Days 7, 15, and 21 of pregnancy and Days 0, 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 postpartum.
