CALCIUM AND ZINC IN THE ENDOMETRIUM AND UTERINE FLUSHINGS OF THE ROE DEER (CAPREOLUS CAPREOLUS) DURING DELAYED IMPLANTATION

in Reproduction

Summary.

The concentration of zinc in the endometrium of the roe deer was maintained at a constantly high level throughout delayed implantation and at the time of rapid embryonic growth. By contrast, the zinc content of the uterine flushings was uniformly low and often undetectable (<0·1 μg/ml).

The concentration of calcium in the endometrium showed a highly significant (P<0·001) increase during delayed implantation reaching maximal levels upon the resumption of rapid embryonic growth. The calcium content of the uterine flushings showed a small but significant (P<0·001) rise in the late stages of diapause followed by a further marked increase during the rapid elongation of the blastocyst in January.
