We have previously reported that anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), also known as Müllerian-inhibiting substance, the testicular glycoprotein involved in regression of the Müllerian ducts of the male fetus, induces the formation of seminiferous cord-like structures in fetal ovaries exposed to it in organ culture. We have now investigated the effect of bovine AMH, purified to homogeneity, on ovarian endocrine differentiation. Ovine fetal ovaries exposed to AMH release testosterone instead of… CONTINUE READING
