Effects of gonadotrophins on progesterone production by isolated granulosa cells of the adenohypophysectomized domestic fowl (Gallus domesticus).


Ovine LH and ovine FSH stimulated progesterone production in granulosa cells isolated from the F1, F2 and F3 follicles of hypophysectomized and control (sham-operation) hens when they were collected 6 h after operation, but the steroidogenic response to LH was greater for granulosa cells from hypophysectomized hens. At 15 h after operation progesterone… (More)
