Abstract

Estrogen stimulates synthesis of progesterone by porcine granulosa cells in tissue culture. This enhancement is inhibited by cycloheximide, suggesting that protein synthesis is required for the effect. Estrogen is synergistic with hCG in increasing progesterone synthesis. Sequential treatment with hCG followed by estradiol causes maximal stimulation of progesterone production.
