Abstract

Regression of the corpus luteum is pivotal in regulating the estrous and menstrual cycle since it permits follicular development and the ovulatory surge of pituitary gonadotropins in the subsequent cycle. Thus, in mammalian species mechanisms have developed which cause regression of the corpus luteum, a response marked by a precipitious decline of circulating progesterone.
