Corpus luteum function in ageing inbred mice

  • R. G. Gosden
  • Ruth E. Fowler


Impaired breeding performance of aged female mice was associated with reduced numbers of ovulations and increased mortality of embryos. The amounts of progesterone in the sera, corpora lutea and uterine flushings of these animals were similar to those of young animals when measured by radioimmunoassay.
