A growing body of evidence indicates that the pro-oxidant/anti-oxidant balance inside the ovarian follicle plays an important role in folliculogenesis. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to assess the redox status of follicular fluids collected from different-sized swine follicles. We quantified the most important reactive oxygen species (ROS), namely superoxide anion (O(2)(-)), hydrogen peroxide and hydroperoxides (ROOH); in addition, we examined the activity of the detoxifying… CONTINUE READING
