Expression of growth differentiation factor 9 messenger RNA in porcine growing and preovulatory ovarian follicles.

Abstract

We have shown previously that porcine cumulus and mural granulosa cells produce a factor that is very similar, if not identical, to the oocyte-derived cumulus expansion-enabling factor (CEEF). Because growth differentiation factor 9 (GDF9) is the most likely candidate for the CEEF, in the present study we tested the hypothesis that GDF9 is expressed not… (More)
