Changes in the capacity of follicles to mature properly and/or respond to appropriate preovulatory events could be involved with altered follicular development, failure of the follicle(s) to ovulate at the appropriate time, and abnormal embryonic development. The long-term goal of the research proposed in our lab is to provide fundamental knowledge about the physiological role and mechanism of action of ovarian signaling molecules involved in follicular development in the adult ovary and steroid production.
