Reproduction in mice: resorption of the fetal adrenal cortex in mated female mice



Reproduction in mice: resorption of the fetal adrenal cortex in mated female mice



Biology of Reproduction 24(2): 241-244



The resorption of the fetal adrenal cortex in 60-90 day old C3HeB/FeJ female mice was initiated by successful mating. The complete disappearance of the fetal zone by day 11 of pregnancy was assured if embryos were implanted in the uterus. The initiation of the degeneration of the fetal zone was not dependent on the receipt of spermatozoa, nor was it associated with the physical stimulation of mating, which induces the pseudopregnant state. It was dependent on exposure of the female to other factors associated with the mating process, most probably a component of the fluids in which spermatozoa are transferred.
