Synergistic effect of insulin and follicle-stimulating hormone on biochemical and morphological differentiation of porcine granulosa cells in vitro






Biology of Reproduction 39(2): 379-390

Synergistic effect of insulin and follicle-stimulating hormone on biochemical and morphological differentiation of porcine granulosa cells in vitro

Porcine granulosa cells isolated from small antral follicles (controls) cultured in the absence of exogenous hormones exhibited few microvilli and gap junctions; the mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, and Golgi complex were all poorly developed. Progesterone secretion was negligible and the cells bound little odo-HCG.
