Follicular development in the mammalian ovary is a complex process regulated by an orchestrated action of the pituitary gonadotropins, e.g., follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), and local ovarian factors, such as peptide growth factors and steroids. The mechanism of endocrine/paracrine/autocrine regulation of folliculogenesis (i.e., cell proliferation and functions) has been addressed largely by biochemical means. However, the availability of immunological and… CONTINUE READING
