During the last decade, involvement of growth hormone (GH), insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) and IGF binding proteins (IGFBPs) in ovarian folliculogenesis has been extensively studied. This review provides an update on the GH, IGF system and their role in ovarian follicular development. In vitro studies and knockout experiments demonstrated an important role of GH in preantral follicle growth and differentiation through their binding with GH receptors, which are located both in the oocyte and… CONTINUE READING
