There has been significant attention to the growing recognition that oocytes have a critical capacity to organize and govern surrounding somatic cells. Bone morphogenetic protein 15 (BMP-15) is an oocyte-secreted factor that has raised particular interest due to its established role in determining ovulation quota and female fertility in mammals. As a first step in determining whether there are species-specific differences in the BMP-15 system that may play causal roles in the differences in… CONTINUE READING
