Effect of the Dominant Follicle Aspiration before or after Luteinizing Hormone Surge on the Corpus Luteum Formation in the Cow
Journal of reproduction and development
Luteinizing hormone (LH) surge and follicle rupture act as trigger to start corpus luteum (CL) formation. Thus, we aimed to investigate whether a dominant follicle that has not been exposed to an LH surge can become a functional CL. For this purpose, follicular fluid from the dominant follicles (DF) of cows was aspirated before or after a GnRH-induced LH surge, and subsequent CL formation was observed. Holstein cows were divided into four groups as follows: Luteal phase, a DF was aspirated 7doi:10.1262/jrd.17049 pmid:16293945 fatcat:pec7bsnpibgg7etxurn24k64zu
