..9Â±6.55nM/g dry wt., respectively (P<0.05). Our findings suggest that measurement of fecal progestin concentrations during blastocyst reactivation and implantation may be a useful indicator of successful pregnancies in mink. ..

..05). We concluded that the effects of estradiol on uterine glycogen metabolism were mediated in part through catecholestrogens; perhaps the combined actions of these hormones are required for optimal uterine glycogen synthesis in mink. ..
