Comparative effects of insulin and insulin-like growth factors on DNA synthesis and differentiation of porcine granulosa cells
Nine of 11 women with granulosa cell
tumors were [greater than or equal to]50 years of age, but two were 30-40 years of age and had undergone bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy before the study.
In the large follicles (>300 [micro]m), DHEA treatment induced a decrease of theca and granulosa cells
layers thickness, irrespective of other hormonal administration (Table 4).
Changes in antioxidant status of porcine ovarian granulosa cells
after quercetin and T-2 toxin treatment.
In addition, whether miR-378 regulates the apoptosis of bovine granulosa cells
(bGCs) remains undetermined.
IL-1 secreted in follicle can regulate granulosa cells
to synthesize prostaglandin and control the collagenase activity, which play a crucial role in ovulation (10).
125) Although mutation of the FOXL2 gene is highly specific for adult granulosa cell
tumor of the ovary, (126) FOXL2 immunostaining does not correlate with the FOXL2 mutational status, and thus cannot be used to distinguish between different histologic types of sex cord-stromal tumors.
Adult Granulosa cell
tumour is the commonest tumour seen in our study.
Intercellular communication between granulosa cells
and mouse oocytes: existence and possible nutritional role during oocyte growth.
7 Testoste-rone propionate also induced granulosa cell
atresia in advanced follicles; it also resulted in underdeveloped streak ovaries in both prepubertal and adult rats.

ER[beta] is highly expressed in ovarian granulosa cells
where it is required for effective ovulation (Couse et al.
Both granulosa cell
tumours were stage 1A, and carcinosarcoma was stage 3A.
7] Low FSH levels impair granulosa cell
growth and inhibits aromatase enzyme essential for conversion of androgen to oestrogen (Short and London 1961).
The mutation of this gene leads to failure of granulosa cell
differentiation, which induces early activation and exhaustion of primordial follicles(33).
