Age-related changes in ovarian morphology were studied in female Japanese monkeys,Macaca fuscata fuscata. A total of 47 nonlactating females of various ages ranging from new-born to >28 yr old were used. Ovarian size increased during the first decade of life, reached a plateau at around 10 yr.

Such mitotic germ cells… CONTINUE READING
