The injection of gonadorelin causes not only luteotrophic support but also prevents the luteolytic mechanism by decreasing of plasma estradiol 17[beta] concentration and hence prohibits the rapid decreased of progesterone (Alaam et al.
A potential approach to reduce progesterone concentrations during follicular development in a CIDR based estrous synchronization protocol is by administering a luteolytic dose of [PGF.
Effects of luteolytic dose of oestradiol benzoate on uterine oxytocin receptor concentrations, phosphoinositide turnover and prostaglandin F-2a secretion in sheep.
In reproduction, PRL can have a luteotropic or luteolytic action, depending on the stage of the reproductive cycle.
All ewes received two luteolytic doses of cloprostenol (125 [micro]g intramusculary; Mallinckrodt, Sao Paulo, Brazil) at 7 day intervals during the breeding season.
The lack of CL maintenance along with the estradiol valerate that is luteolytic induces CL regression.
This is thought to be mediated by the inability of the embryo to suppress the luteolytic mechanism during the period of CL maintenance, further compromising the implantation of the embryo (18).
This study was carried out to evaluate the effect of insemination number (timed artificial insemination: TAI, 2 versus 1) on pregnancy rate in beefheifers treated with two injections of a luteolytic agent (PGF, tiaprost), 12 days between each administration, and to evaluate whether if GnRH administration at one TAI produces similar pregnancy rate compared to two TAI.
