Effects of activin and follistatin on FSH receptor mRNA expression of cultured shao duck granulosa cells

Effects of activin and follistatin on FSH receptor mRNA expression of cultured shao duck granulosa cells

Acta Genetica Sinica 28(12): 1129-1136

The aim of this study was to investigate the action of activin and follistatin either alone or in combination of FSH receptor mRNA expression. The results showed that activin alone increased FSH receptor mRNA level in the presence or absence of FSH in cultured granulosa cells, and the stimulating effect of activin on FSH receptor level was dose-dependent. This effect of activin was inhibited by FSP treatment which alone had no effect on FSH receptor expression.
