The process of ovarian folliculogenesis is composed of proliferation and differentiation of the constitutive cells in developing follicles. In goats, relatively little information is available on the local factors that regulate this process. We studied the presence and distribution of growth differentiation factor 9 (GDF9), bone morphogenetic protein 15 (BMP15), and BMP receptors types 2 (BMPR2), 1A (BMPR1A), and 1B (BMPR1B) in goat ovaries to find evidence for their possible roles in… CONTINUE READING
