The oocyte derived growth differentiation factor (GDF) 9 and bone morphogenetic protein 15 (BMP15; also known as GDF9b) are essential for normal follicular growth. However, little is known about expression of these factors during ovarian development. Therefore, we determined the ontogeny of expression of GDF9 and BMP15 mRNA in the developing ovary of the brushtail possum. Ovaries were collected from pouch young (n=3-5 per group) around times of key developmental events namely: (1) morphological… CONTINUE READING
