Apoptosis is a process of selective cell deletion implicated as a mechanism underlying the process of ovarian follicular atresia. The aims of this study were 1) to test the hypothesis that granulosa cell death during follicular (> or = 4 mm diameter) atresia in cows occurs by apoptosis and 2) to define relationships between the occurrence and degree of granulosa cell apoptosis, cAMP response to FSH or LH, extant aromatase activity, and other previously established biochemical and morphometric… CONTINUE READING
