Effect of HIF-1a/VEGF signaling pathway on plasma progesterone and ovarian prostaglandin F2a secretion during luteal development of pseudopregnant rats

X. Y. Pan, Zhang, Z. H., Wu, L. X., and Wang, Z. C., Effect of HIF-1a/VEGF signaling pathway on plasma progesterone and ovarian prostaglandin F2a secretion during luteal development of pseudopregnant rats, vol. 14, pp. 8796-8809, 2015.

The corpus luteum is a temporary endocrine structure in mammals that plays an important role in the female reproductive cycle and is formed from a ruptured and ovulated follicle with rapid angiogenesis. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is thought to be vital in normal and abnormal angiogenesis in the ovary, but the molecular regulation of luteal VEGF expression during corpus luteum development in vivo is still poorly understood at present.
