Ovarian follicles produce two types of plasminogen activator (tPA and uPA), and their inhibitor (PAI). We have examined the interaction and regulation of these factors in ovarian intact follicles as well as granulosa and theca-interstitial cells. The results show that only tPA, but not uPA, is regulated by the gonadotropins and reaches maximum prior to… CONTINUE READING
