PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the expression of EGF receptor (EGF-R) in human granulosa cells undergoing luteinization and progesterone production by these cells in response to EGF an TGF-alpha alone or in combination with luteinizing hormone (LH). Granulosa cells were obtained from IF patients following oocyte retrieval 34 to 36 hr post-hCG injection. EGF receptor was localized in cells by means of immunoperoxidase staining using a polyclonal primary antibody directed… CONTINUE READING
