Distribution of the «1 to «6 Chains of Type IV Collagen in Bovine Follicles(3)

Consistent with this, the presence of individual chains of laminin was shown to alter with follicular development and atresia. Im-munolocalization studies of the follicular basal lamina have demonstrated the presence of type IV collagen but have not identified which isoforms … Continue reading

Fibronectin, heparan sulfate proteoglycans, and other molecules are associated with the type IV collagen-laminm backbone. Importantly, basal laminae in different regions of the body differ in the ratio of all these components. Furthermore, each “component” is a class of several … Continue reading

Distribution of the «1 to «6 Chains of Type IV Collagen in Bovine Follicles(1)

Development of the ovarian follicle is characterized by dramatic changes in the granulosa compartment. The number of granulosa cells doubles 21 times from the primordial follicle to the 18-mm preovulatory follicle. There is also differentiation of the membrana granulosa cells, … Continue reading
