Abstract

Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is essential for ovarian folliculogenesis. In the ovary, high-affinity FSH receptors on granulosa cells (GC) are the specific targets for FSH (1, for review). The end point of FSH action is the induction and/or regulation of multiple physiological responses that result in follicle development and eventually ovulation, the discussions of which are well covered by other authors in this symposium.
