The interaction of FSH with granulosa cell receptors has previously been studied by Nimrod et al. (1), Louvet and Vaitukaitis (2) and Lee and Takahashi (3) in the rat and by Zeleznik et al. (4) in the porcine. In this report, we describe the binding of FSH to bovine granulosa cells and summarize studies suggesting the presence in bovine follicular fluid of a low molecular weight inhibitor of FSH binding (FSH-BI) to bovine granulosa cell receptors.
