These results demonstrate that 1) expression of Cx43 increases with follicular development from primordial to antral stage; 2) expression of Cx43 in granulosa layer is greater than in theca layer which is likely due to the avascular nature of the granulosa layer, and 3) both level of energy and Se in maternal diet affect Cx43 expression in antral follicles.

In particular, we found that the number of caspase-3-positive apoptotic cells was significantly increased in granulosa cells of the antral follicles and in luteal cells of the corpus luteum of ovaries from rats exposed to BPA, suggesting that long-term BPA exposure during adulthood causes augmentation of follicular atresia and luteal regression in the ovary.
Bovine cumulus oocyte complexs (CoCs) were aspirated from small antral follicles (2-8 mm) using a 18-guage needle connected to a 10 ml strile syring that conatien 1 ml Oocyte Collection Medium (HEPES-TCM 199 (M7528) supplemented with 10% FBS (F6178), and 2 IU/ml of heparin), and the contents recovered into a 15 ml conical tube and allowed to settle for 10 minute.
