Whereas FSH action is critical for the growth of preantral follicles, its role in the development of primordial follicles is controversial. The objective of the present study was to evaluate whether perinatal (fetal through early postnatal) FSH action is needed for the formation of primordial follicles, which first appear in the hamster ovary on the 7th to 8th day of postnatal life. A single dose of FSH-specific polyclonal antibody was injected into pregnant hamsters on the 12th, 13th, or 14th… CONTINUE READING
