1995b) into the uterine lumen from d 12 to 14 or d 11 to 15 of the estrous cycle extends the interestrous interval and CL lifespan; therefore, IFNT alone appears to be the antiluteolytic factor produced by ovine conceptuses.
Intrauterine injections of recombinant ovine IFNT (roIFNT) and bovine IFNT (rbIFNT) extend CL lifespan, interestrous interval and inhibit OXT-induced secretion of PGF by the uterus.
Intrauterine infusion of bovine conceptus secretory proteins in cyclic cows between d 15 to 21 increases the interestrous interval from 23 to 24 d to 30 to 39 d (Knickerbocker et al.
Nevertheless, interestrous intervals are only 30 to 35 d when conceptuses are flushed from the uterus of ewes on d 16 or after intrauterine infusions of either highly purified native IFNT or recombinant IFNT between d 11 and 15 after onset of estrus.
