Abstract

Progesterone production in vitro, in the presence and absence of exogenous gonadotropin, was examined in suspensions of luteal cells isolated by collagenase digestion of rhesus monkey corpus luteum at various stages of the menstrual cycle. Cells isolated during mid luteal phase (days 15-19) of the cycle secreted progesterone for up to 6 h in vitro. Mid luteal phase cells were responsive to physiologic concentrations of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), with progesterone production significantly (P
