Little is known about the ADAMTS (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs) family of extracellular proteases in ovarian follicles of non-rodent species, particularly in theca cells. In the present study, temporal patterns of change in mRNA for four ADAMTS subtypes and the hormonal transcriptional regulation of two subtypes were investigated in theca cells during the periovulatory period in cattle. Follicles were obtained at 0 h post-gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH; preovulatory) or at 6, 12, 18, or 24 h after injection of GnRH (periovulatory) to induce a luteinizing hormone (LH)/follicle-stimulating hormone surge...

BACKGROUND: Janus kinase 3 (JAK3) is a member of the membrane-associated non-receptor tyrosine kinase protein family and is considered predominantly expressed in hematopoietic cells. We previously identified JAK3 as a differentially expressed gene in granulosa cells (GC) of bovine preovulatory follicles. The present study aimed to further investigate JAK3 regulation, to identify protein binding partners and better understand its mode of action in bovine reproductive cells. RESULTS: GC were obtained from small follicles (SF), dominant follicles at day 5 of the estrous cycle (DF), and ovulatory follicles, 24 h following hCG injection (OF)...

A surge of luteinizing hormone (LH) from the pituitary gland induces the expression of the epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like factors, which triggers oocyte maturation, cumulus expansion, and ovulation. How LH induces EGF-like factor expression is unclear. In the present study, a rapid increase of phosphorylated cAMP response element binding protein (CREB) was observed after the activation of LH receptor by human chorionic gonadotropin. Large antral follicles from equine chorionic gonadotropin-primed mice were cultured in medium with LH to stimulate the expression of EGF-like factors...

The commercial fish spawning inducer Ovaprim (OVP) containing a salmon gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogue and domperidone (a dopamine receptor-2 antagonist) has been widely used as an effective spawning inducer in artificial breeding of fishes. It induces a preovulatory LH surge resulting in final oocyte maturation (FOM) and ovulation through a mechanism involving a steroidogenic shift to secrete a maturation-inducing steroid (MIS). In the present study, a 0.5μL/g body weight dose of OVP each injected at 0h and 24h intraperitoneally into gravid female catfish, Heteropneustes fossilis resulted in periovulatory changes in gonadotropin (GtH) subunit gene expression and steroid hormone levels...

Using a new tail-tip bleeding procedure and a sensitive ELISA, we describe here the patterns of LH secretion throughout the mouse estrous cycle; in ovariectomized mice; in ovariectomized, estradiol-treated mice that model estrogen-negative and -positive feedback; and in transgenic GNR23 mice that exhibit allele-dependent reductions in GnRH neuron number. Pulsatile LH secretion was evident at all stages of the estrous cycle, with LH pulse frequency being approximately one pulse per hour in metestrous, diestrous, and proestrous mice but much less frequent at estrus (less than one pulse per 4 h)...

Adipose tissue plays an important role in regulating female fertility, owing to not only its energy stores but also the endocrine actions of secreted adipokines. As one of the adipokines, adiponectin is almost exclusively secreted from the fat, and its circulating concentration is paradoxically reduced in obesity. Although recent studies implied a purported positive role of adiponectin in ovarian functions, definitive in vivo evidence has been sorely lacking. We have consistently observed subfertility in female adiponectin null mice and therefore postulated a protective role of adiponectin in ovarian functions...

BACKGROUND: Human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) is a marker of early pregnancy. This study sought to determine the possibility of being able to distinguish between healthy and failing pregnancies by utilising patient-associated risk factors and daily urinary hCG levels. METHODS: Data were from a study that collected daily early morning urine samples from women trying to conceive (n=1,505); 250 of whom became pregnant. Data from 129 women who became pregnant (including 44 miscarriages) were included in these analyses...

STUDY QUESTION: Do the reproductive outcomes from the transfer of fully hatched (FH) blastocysts differ from those of not fully hatched (NFH) blastocysts? SUMMARY ANSWER: Biochemical pregnancy rate (BPR), implantation rate (IR), live birth rate (LBR) and early pregnancy loss (EPL) rate are similar in FH and NFH single euploid blastocyst embryo transfers. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: The use of extended culture and PGS often leads to transfer of an embryo that is well developed and frequently FH from the zona pellucida...

Progesterone production is upregulated in granulosa cells (cumulus and mural) after the LH surge, but the intra-follicular mechanisms regulating this transition are not completely known. Recent findings show that the transition metal chelator, N,N,N',N'-tetrakis-(2-pyridylmethyl)-ethylenediamine (TPEN), impairs ovarian function. In this study, we provide evidence that chelating transition metals, including zinc, enhances progesterone production. The findings show that TPEN (transition metal chelator) increases abundance of Cyp11a1 and Star messenger RNA (mRNA) between 8- and 20-fold and progesterone production more than 3-fold in cultured cumulus-oocyte complexes (COC)...

Luteinizing hormone (LH) stimulates steroidogenesis largely through a surge in cyclic AMP (cAMP). Steroidogenic rates are also critically dependent on the availability of cholesterol at mitochondrial sites of synthesis. This cholesterol is provided by cellular uptake of lipoproteins, mobilization of intracellular lipid, and de novo synthesis. Whether and how these pathways are coordinated by cAMP are poorly understood. Recent phosphoproteomic analyses of cAMP-dependent phosphorylation sites in MA10 Leydig cells suggested that cAMP regulates multiple steps in these processes, including activation of the SCAP/SREBP pathway...

STUDY QUESTION: Does adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) induce gonadotropin release in premenopausal women? SUMMARY ANSWER: Administration of ACTH stimulates gonadotropin release, most likely by stimulation of the production of cortisol, in premenopausal women. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: In animal models, acute activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis has been shown to induce gonadotropin release in the presence of sufficiently high estrogen levels...

It is widely accepted that uterine contraction is initiated by spontaneous generation of electrical activity at a cellular level in the form of action potentials. Such action potential events, when they involve many myometrial cells and occur in immediate succession, are described by their amplitude and duration. In an effort to improve clinical management of uterine contractions, research has focused on determination of the properties of the reproductive tract's electrical activity under hormonal stimulation...

BACKGROUND: In Spanish public hospital Reproduction Units it is very problematic to perform programmed intrauterine insemination (IUI) on weekends, if indicated. Small previous pilot studies suggest that using a GnRH antagonist to avoid an LH weekend surge would allow to perform IUI on the following Monday, not impairing the expected pregnancy rate. METHODS: Between 1st January 2007 and 31st December 2015, 4.782 intrauterine inseminations were performed at Valladolid University Clinic, Spain, corresponding to 1...

The time course effects of ovarian steroids on kisspeptin and GnRH/LH systems is not totally clarified. We investigated the temporal relationship among kisspeptin and GnRH mRNA and kisspeptin content in the preoptic area (POA), GnRH content and release in the medial basal hypothalamus (MBH) and plasma LH levels under different steroid treatments. Ovariectomized rats treated with oil (OVOO), oil plus single dose of estradiol (OVOE), oil plus single dose of progesterone (OVOP), estradiol for 3 days plus oil (OVEO) or estradiol for 3 days plus progesterone (OVEP) were hourly decapitated from 10:00 to 17:00 or had the MBH microdialyzed from 09:00 to 19:00...

O J Ginther
Selection of the dominant follicle (DF) during a follicular wave is manifested by diameter deviation or continued growth rate of the largest follicle (F1) and decreased growth rate of the next largest follicle (F2) when F1 reaches about 8.5 mm in cattle. The process of deviation in the future DF begins about 12 h before diameter deviation and involves an F1 increase in granulosa LH receptors and estradiol and maintenance of intrafollicular free insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1). Thereby, only F1 is developmentally prepared to use the declining FSH in the wave-stimulating FSH surge and to respond to a transient increase in LH to become the DF...

The LH surge induces functional and morphological changes in granulosa cells. Mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) is an integrator of signalling pathways in multiple cell types. We hypothesized that mTOR kinase activity integrates and modulates molecular pathways induced by LH in granulosa cells during the preovulatory period. Cows were ovariectomized and granulosa cells collected at 0, 3, 6, 12 and 24 hr after GnRH injection. While RHEB mRNA levels increased at 3 and 6 hr, returning to basal levels by 12 hr after GnRH treatment, RHOA mRNA levels increased at 6 hr and remained high thereafter...

Follicle deviation during a follicular wave is a continuation in growth rate of the dominant follicle (F1) and decreased growth rate of the largest subordinate follicle (F2). The reliability of using an F1 of 8.5 mm to represent the beginning of expected deviation for experimental purposes during waves 1 and 2 (n = 26 per wave) was studied daily in heifers. Each wave was subgrouped as follows: standard subgroup (F1 larger than F2 for 2 days preceding deviation and F2 > 7.0 mm on the day of deviation), undersized subgroup (F2 did not attain 7...
