Murdoch W, Lund S. Prostaglandin-independent anovulatory mechanism of indomethacin action: inhibition of tumor necrosis factor alpha-induced sheep ovarian cell apoptosis. Biol Reprod. 1999;61:1655-9 pubmed
..It is concluded that indomethacin inhibits ovulation by anti-apoptotic mechanisms that can be dissociated from the paradigm of prostanoid down-regulation. ..
Murdoch W, Van Kirk E, Murdoch J. Plasmin cleaves tumor necrosis factor alpha exodomain from sheep follicular endothelium: implication in the ovulatory process. Biol Reprod. 1999;60:1166-71 pubmed
..We suggest that plasmin-mediated cleavage of TNFalpha exodomain from its membrane anchor along thecal endothelium is a determinant of tissue dissolution within the formative ovulatory rupture site of ewes. ..
