Abstract
In granulosa cells isolated from preovulatory follicles of PMSG the entire range of the progesterone response curve shifted to lower hCG concentrations indicating a sufficient cAMP level within an intracellular compartment for mediating steroidogenic response. Granulosa cells obviously differ from rat Leydig cells where maximum steroidogenic response is achieved when only 1% of the LH receptors are occupied.
