IntroductionOvulation is similar to an inflammatory response and is associated with increased production of prostaglandins as well as local growth regulatory factors. However, the expression and function of innate immune cell-related genes in non-immune cells within the ovary has been reported recently and provides a novel and important regulatory system during ovulation.DiscussionSeveral members of the Toll-like receptor (TLR) surveillance system are expressed in granulosa cells and cumulus… CONTINUE READING
