CYP51A1 induced by growth differentiation factor 9 and follicle-stimulating hormone in granulosa cells is a possible predictor for unfertilization.

Abstract

Growth differentiation factor 9 (GDF9), an oocyte-secreted factor, whose receptors exist in granulosa cells, is involved in follicle progression. Therefore, GDF9 is considered to potentially mediate signals necessary for follicular growth. However, the effect of GDF9 on human granulosa cells is not fully understood. Human immortalized nonluteinized… (More)
