Plasma profile of progesterone, estradiol-17β and some blood biochemical attributes during different gestation periods in Iraqi female dromedary camels (Camelus dromedarius)

This study was conducted to demonstrate the plasma profile of progesterone, estradiol-17β and some blood biochemical attributes (glucose, cholesterol concentrations and alkaline phosphates activity) of Iraqi female dromedary camels (Camelus dromedarius) during different gestation periods.. This experiment included 5 multiparous, non-lactating Iraqi one-humped female camels (Camelus dromedarius) of 7- 8 years old. Blood was collected from female camels at days 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 90, 120, 150 and 180 post-mating (PM). The plasma progesterone concentrations did not significantly differ among days 20-120 PM. Greater (P≤ 0.05) progesterone concentrations were observed at days 150 and 180 PM as compared with days.20, 30 and 40 PM. No remarkable alterations in plasma estradiol-17β concentrations were seen among different gestation periods. Non- significant variations were detected in plasma glucose concentrations during the entire gestation periods studied (day 20-60 PM). Higher (p
