Abstract

In the mammalian ovary, more than 99% of follicles degenerate without ovulation and few oocytes ovulate and succeed to the next generation. Granulosa cell apoptosis plays a critical role in this process, follicular atresia. However, the molecular mechanisms responsible for the regulation of granulosa cell apoptosis have not been clarified. Death ligand and receptor systems are major apoptosis-inducing factors. This review describes the granulosa cell apoptosis <i>via</i> death ligand and receptor systems during follicular atresia in the porcine ovary.<br>
