Levels of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), IGF-II, and IGF-binding proteins (IGFBPs) were studied in ovine follicular fluid and serum with a view to determining their respective endocrine and/or paracrine roles in ovarian folliculogenesis. Ovarian follicles of Ile-de-France ewes were dissected and measured individually, and their follicular fluid collected. Follicles were classified according to size and degree of atresia, assessed on the basis of microscopical examination of smears of… CONTINUE READING
