Association between surges of follicle-stimulating hormone and the emergence of follicular waves in heifers.
The effects of ablation of a dominant follicle and treatment with follicular fluid on circulating concentrations of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) were studied and the temporal relationshipsExpand

Progress in understanding ovarian follicular dynamics in cattle.
The study of follicular dynamics began in the mid-20th century, but progress has been particularly rapid in the last two decades through the use of tools that have enabled serial, non-invasiveExpand

Effect of progesterone on ovarian follicles, emergence of follicular waves and circulating follicle-stimulating hormone in heifers.
The hypothesis was tested that greater growth of the dominant follicle of wave 1 (first follicular wave of an interovulatory interval), compared with that of subsequent anovulatory waves, is due toExpand

Characterization of Ovarian Follicular Wave Dynamics in Women1
Abstract A wave phenomenon of ovarian follicular development in women has recently been documented in our laboratory. The objective of the present study was to characterize follicular waves toExpand

Repeatability of 2-wave and 3-wave patterns of ovarian follicular development during the bovine estrous cycle.
Characteristics predictive of a 2-wave versus 3-wave pattern of ovarian follicular development during the interovulatory interval (IOI) were examined by ultrasonographic monitoring of 91 IOIs from 31Expand

Ovarian follicular wave emergence after treatment with progestogen and estradiol in cattle
Abstract An experiment was designed to evaluate the effects of treatment with progestogen and estradiol-17β (E-17β), in combination, at different stages of development of the dominant follicle, onExpand

Recent advances in the superovulation in cattle.
The variability in the superovulatory response continues to be one of the most frustrating problems with embryo transfer in cattle. The removal of LH from pituitary extracts has tended to reduce theExpand

EXOGENOUS CONTROL OF FOLLICULAR WAVE EMERGENCE IN CATTLE
Variability in ovarian response to superstimulatory treatments and in the interval from PGF20 treatment to es&us in cattle is largely attributable to the status of follicular wave development at theExpand

Ovulation-Inducing Factor in the Seminal Plasma of Alpacas and Llamas1
Abstract Studies were conducted to document the existence of an ovulation-inducing factor in the seminal plasma of alpacas (experiment 1) and llamas (experiment 2) and to determine if the effect isExpand
