Title:
Expression and localization of apelin and its receptor APJ in the bovine corpus luteum during the estrous cycle and prostaglandin F2α-induced luteolysis 
Abstract:
Angiogenesis, changes in blood flow, and extracellularmatrix remodeling are the processes associated with the development and demise of the bovine corpus luteum(CL) during the estrous cycle. APJ (putative receptor protein related to angiotensin type 1 receptor) is a G-proteincoupled receptor, and its ligand, apelin, has been identified as a novel regulator of blood pressure and as an angiogenic factor. We hypothesized that the apelin–APJ system is involved in luteal function. This study inve...    »
