Increased expression of genes responsible for enzymes involved in cellular antioxidant defense systems in chronically vitamin D deficient female mice suggests higher levels of intraovarian
Usefulness of intraovarian
artery pulsatility and resistance indices measurement on the day of follicle aspiration for the assessment of oocyte quality.
Systemic and intraovarian
effects of corpus luteum on follicular dynamics during estrous cycle in hair breed sheep.
Furthermore, during ovarian follicular development, several growth factors and cytokines act as intraovarian
regulators in vivo, and in the follicle, the action of gonadotrophins is modulated by locally produced paracrine and autocrine growth factors [20, 21].
Furthermore, using follicular fluid as a surrogate of the intraovarian
milieu, we showed that local gonadotropin-induced androgen production is associated with intraovarian
exposure to lipids and that this association may be mediated by ineffective NEFA [beta]-oxidation (Figure 1, bottom left part) .
Ovarian folliculogenesis is organised by the interaction of extraovarian and intraovarian
factors that coordinate the processes of oocyte growth and follicular development in the periovulatory period (5).
Circannual variations in intraovarian
oocyte but not epididymal sperm quality in the domestic Cat.
Some studies have reported that the effects of gonadotropins on follicular development and ovulation rate are mediated by intraovarian
growth factors such as the insulin-like growth factor, bone morphogenetic proteins, and epidermal growth factor .
Indeed, an increase in intraovarian
reactive oxygen species (ROS) has been convincingly correlated with increasing maternal age [12-15].
