Purpose: To examine the expression of inhibin-activin subunits, follistatin, and Smads 2, 3 and 4 in granulosa-luteal cells at the time of oocyte retrieval. Methods: Quantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction was performed to quantify the mRNA expression of the investigated genes: inhibin α-subunit, inhibin-activin βA- and βB-subunits, follistatin, and Smads 2, 3 and 4. Results: α-, βA- and βB-subunits of inhibin-activin, and follistatin were all well expressed in granulosa… CONTINUE READING
