Previous our studies have shown that CD44, the principal receptor for hyaluronan, is present on cumulus cells during oocyte maturation. Although hyaluronan-CD44 interaction has been implicated in cumulus expansion and/or oocyte maturation, the full significance of CD44 remains unknown. The objective of the present study was to further investigate the role(More)
We studied the ability of hyaluronan (HA) to inhibit apoptosis in porcine granulosa cells. The granulosa layer with cumulus-oocyte complex is cultured in media supplemented with follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and 4-MU an inhibitor of hyaluronan synthases. The concentration of HA significantly increased after supplemented with FSH, but significantly(More)
Macrophages are essential in cleaning up apoptotic debris during follicular atresia. However, the key factors of this process are still unclear. In the present study, we evaluated CD44 mRNA, CD44 protein, and CD44 antigen glycosylation on macrophages during follicular atresia in the pig. Atresia was classified into five stages: stage I, healthy follicles;(More)
CD44 on macrophages is recognized as a phagocytic receptor involved in the phagocytosis of apoptotic cells. Recently, we detected CD44 on macrophages in atretic follicles during atresia. In this study, we evaluated the distribution of the principal CD44 ligand hyaluronan (HA) and the expressions of HA synthases (HAS: HAS1, HAS2, and HAS3) during atresia in(More)
