Recombinant human interleukin-1 (IL-1) inhibits the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)-induced development of luteinizing hormone (LH) receptors and suppresses progesterone secretion in cultured rat granulosa cells. Since activation of adenylate cyclase by FSH is considered to be the primary second messenger system responsible for differentiation of granulosa cells, we examined whether IL-1 could alter the FSH, cholera toxin, or forskolin-induced accumulation of cyclic adenosine 3', 5… 
Inhibition by gonadotropins of interleukin-1 production by rabbit granulosa and theca cells: effects on gonadotropin-induced progesterone production.
TLDR
Gonadotropins, by inhibiting IL-1 production, could control IL- 1 modulation of gonadotropin action on steroidogenesis in a dose-dependent manner, and it is concluded that in this model gonadotropic action on steroidsogenesis could be controlled.
Rabbit ovarian production of interleukin-6 and its potential effects on gonadotropin-induced progesterone secretion in granulosa and theca cells.
TLDR
The results suggest that gonadotropins, by inhibiting IL-6 production, could control, in the authors' model, IL- 6 modulation of gonadotropic action on steroidogenesis.
Lymphokines, including interleukin-2, alter gonadotropin-stimulated progesterone production and proliferation of human granulosa-luteal cells in vitro.
TLDR
It is concluded that human recombinant IL-2 significantly inhibits progesterone production stimulated by hCG in human granulosa-luteal cells and had a marked inhibitory effect on forskolin-induced progestersone release.
Effects of Bacterial Endotoxin (Lipopolysaccharide) on FSH-Induced Granulosa Cell Activities
TLDR
The preliminary results have shown that bacterial endotoxin (lipopolysaccharide, LPS) exerted inhibitory effects on FSH-induced formation of LH receptors in rat GCs, suggesting the possibility that LPS may act either directly on GCs or may act indirectly by inducing the production of a secondary factor that influences GC function.
Cytokine-mediated regulation of ovarian function: interleukin-1 inhibits gonadotropin-induced androgen biosynthesis.
TLDR
Findings indicate that relatively low concentrations of IL-1, possibly originating from somatic ovarian cells or resident ovarian macrophages, are capable of exerting an inhibitory effect upon gonadotropin-supported androgen production.
Regulation of rat granulosa cell plasminogen activator system: influence of interleukin-1 beta and ovarian follicular development.
TLDR
During ovarian folliculogenesis, IL-1 beta may modulate the progression of granulosa cells from a proliferative to a differentiated state and may play a control role in determining the fate of the follicle (i.e., ovulation vs. atresia).
Ovarian interleukin-1 receptor antagonist in rats: gene expression, cellular localization, cyclic variation, and hormonal regulation of a potential determinant of interleukin-1 action.
TLDR
In vivo and in vitro observations document the rat ovary as a site of IL-1RA (sIL- 1RA > cIL-1 RA) expression, localize the relevant transcripts to the granulosa cell, disclose peak expression at the time of ovulation, and establish IL- 1 dependence.
Human intraovarian interleukin-1 (IL-1) system: highly compartmentalized and hormonally dependent regulation of the genes encoding IL-1, its receptor, and its receptor antagonist.
TLDR
Findings reveal the existence of a complete, highly compartmentalized, hormonally dependent intraovarian IL-1 system replete with ligands, receptor, and receptor antagonist.
Interleukin-1 is both morphogenic and cytotoxic to cultured rat ovarian cells: obligatory role for heterologous, contact-independent cell-cell interaction.
TLDR
Although minimally effective at the level of the isolated granulosa or theca-interstitial cell, IL-1 proved highly potent in heterologous (but not homologous), contact-dependent and independent cocultures of these somatic cell types, strongly suggesting obligatory cell-cell cooperation.
Interleukin-1 beta stimulates sphingomyelin hydrolysis in cultured granulosa cells: evidence for a regulatory role of ceramide on progesterone and prostaglandin biosynthesis.
TLDR
The results show that ceramide triggers a negative-effector pathway that is both necessary and sufficient to reproduce the inhibitory effect of IL1 beta on FSH-stimulated granulosa cell steroidogenesis, and support the notion that sphingomyelin hydrolysis may be important for cytokine-induced PGHS-2 expression but not enough to reproduce IL1beta- Stimulated PGE2 biosynthesis.
