A comparative study on transforming growth factor-beta and activin A for preantral follicles from adult, immature, and diethylstilbestrol-primed immature mice.


Both transformation growth factor-beta (TGFbeta) and activin belong to the TGFbeta superfamily, and each receptor is structurally related. We have shown that the action of activin A on folliculogenesis is different in immature and adult mice, so it is of interest to study whether TGFbeta has such an action on follicular development. The effect of TGFbeta on… (More)
