Of all the stages of mammalian folliculogenesis, the primordial to primary follicle transition is the least understood. In order to gain new insights into this process, we have conducted a comprehensive morphological, morphometric and molecular study of ovarian organisation and early follicle development in the rabbit. The structure of ovaries collected from rabbits aged from 2–12 weeks (a period encompassing primordial follicle formation, activation and the first wave of folliculogenesis in… CONTINUE READING
