Remarkably little is known about folliculogenesis in the dog. Objectives were to characterise (1) changes in follicle/oocyte diameter and granulosa cell number and (2) localisation of fibroblast growth factor (FGF)-2 and FGF-7 during dog ovarian follicle development. Fourteen ovarian pairs were excised and processed for histological evaluation. Two to four serial sections/bitch were stained with hematoxylin, and follicle/oocyte diameters and granulosa cell number were determined at each… CONTINUE READING
