The C3H/Tw mice were those showing regular 5-day cycles. A population of small follicles (100-149 microns in diameter) started growing at oestrus, but the majority underwent atresia during metoestrus, dioestrus and pro-oestrus. The remaining healthy follicles continued to grow during the next cycle, although several large ones eventually became atretic and failed to ovulate. Finally about 10 follicles survived and attained the preovulatory stage, measuring more than 400 microns in diameter by… CONTINUE READING
