It is a temporary endocrine structure in female mammals that is involved in the production of relatively high levels of progesterone and moderate levels of estradiol and inhibin A. It is colored as a result of concentrating carotenoids (including lutein) from the diet and secretes a moderate amount of estrogento inhibit further release of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) and thus secretion of luteinising hormone (LH) andfollicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). A new corpus luteum develops with each menstrual cycle.
