PRLR and 3[beta]-HSD were observed in both small and large luteal cells. A qualitative estimation indicated that the maximum colocalization of PRLR and 3[beta]-HSD occurred during midpregnancy, and this result is consistent with what was analyzed for each marker separately both by immunohistochemistry and by qPCR.

After ovulation takes place, for a couple of days the former follicle--now the corpus luteum--fills up with these luteal cells, which make progesterone.

It is also suggested that the increased PI between 48 and 72 h during GCs real-time culturing may be a result of granulosa cell differentiation into luteal cells, which takes place both in vivo and in vitro.
In addition, galectin1 and -3 may mediate progesterone production and metabolism in luteal cells via different mechanisms (Nio-Kobayashi & Iwanaga, 2010).
Immunohistochemistry depicted the presence of the ligands LEP and GHR, together with their respective receptors, LEPR and Ghr-R1A, in equine luteal cells. No staining was present in negative controls (Figures 1(e) and 1(f)).
