Epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor localization in cultured human granulosa lutein cells and the stimulation of progesterone production by EGF and transforming growth factor-α (TGF-α)


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 and TGF-α alone or in combination with luteinizing hormone (LH). Granulosa cells were obtained from IVF patients following oocyte retrieval 34 to 36 hr post-hCG… (More)
