A surge in the secretion of gonadotropins stimulates several processes in mammalian preovulatory follicles, including oocyte maturation, cumulus expansion (mucification) and ovulation. This surge results in increased circulating levels of both luteinising hormome (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). It has generally been thought that LH is primarily responsible for the stimulation of the maturational processes in preovulatory follicles that results in ovulation and corpus luteum… CONTINUE READING
