This study was aimed to improve knowledge about swine ovarian follicular function, paying attention to angiogenesis, since new vessel growth is a fundamental event in ovarian function. In particular, we investigated a potential involvement of netrin-1, a protein known as a guidance axon factor. Firstly, we studied the expression and immunolocalization of(More)
Netrin-1 was first identified as a guidance factor in axon outgrowth during central nervous system development and was later shown to be involved in the morphogenesis of other organs. This study, thus, aimed to verify netrin-1 gene expression in swine antral follicles and to detect netrin-1 protein expression in follicular fluid. In addition, since netrin-1(More)
