Relative roles of theca and granulosa cells in ovarian follicular steroidogenesis in the amphibian, Rana nigromaculata.


Using frog ovarian follicles in vitro we assessed the role of the theca/epithelium (THEP) layer and granulosa cells in the production of steroids. The THEP layer and granulosa cell-enclosed oocytes (GCEOs) were separated from ovarian follicles of the frog, Rana nigromaculata, by microdissection. Intact follicles (IFs), THEP layer, or GCEOs were cultured for… (More)
