Abstract

Background: We also aimed to detect endogenous anti-prostaglandin F-2 alpha antibodies and the relationship between these antibodies and fertility parameters such as pregnancy rates after the use of PGF(2)alpha. Synchronization of estrus with the PGF(2)alpha is sometimes ineffective in sheep. This situation is to bring about due to the lack of a functional corpus luteum, given before day 5-6 of the estrous cycle. But, it can be suggested that the immunity developing for endogenous or exogenous PGF(2)alpha analogues or metabolites.
