    The aim of this study was to explore the direct action of melatonin (Me) on basal and gonadotropin-stimulated progesterone (PG) and estradiol (E2) secretion of human granulosa cells (GCs) cultured in serum-free medium and in a superfused GC system. Human GCs were isolated from preovulatory follicular fluid aspirated from 34 women undergoing in vitro fertilization at the University Women's Hospital of Tubingen. PG and E2 production was measured in the presence and absence of Me, propranolol, LH or FSH using radioimmunoassay. Statistical analysis of the data was performed by ANOVA and Newman-Keuls test. Me stimulated E2 secretion in a dose-dependent manner. Propranolol did not cause any change in E2 secretion, and when given with Me, it only partially blocked but could not entirely prevent E2 output. There was no statistically significant effect of Me on PG production when Me was administered at concentrations between 10(-4) and 10(-8) M. However, at 10(-3) M Me significantly suppressed PG output of granulosa cells. LH and FSH significantly stimulated the secretion of both steroid hormones. Me significantly reduced LH- and FSH-induced E2 secretion, as well as LH-stimulated PG output, while it caused only a slight, yet significant decrease in PG secretion. In the superfused GC system, FSH and LH resulted in a significant stimulatory effect on PG release. Me did not modify the stimulatory effect of FSH on PG, while it caused some delay in LH-stimulated PG release. Propranolol and Me had no stimulatory effect on PG release. On the basis of our results we suggest that Me has a direct modulatory effect on basal E2 and gonadotropin-stimulated E2 and PG secretion of human GCs. The observed effect may play a physiological role in the regulation of GC function during the menstrual cycle.
