Regulation of ovarian activity is an integrated process encompassing both extraovarian signals and intrafollicular factors. Initiation of primordial follicle growth and the early stages of folliculogenesis can occur without gonadotropins, but FSH may affect the rate of preantral follicle growth. Antral follicle development from 1 to 4 mm in sheep and cattle is completely gonadotropin dependent. These recruited follicles express a range of mRNA encoding steroidogenic enzymes, gonadotropin… CONTINUE READING
