How to Play
True/ False: Estradiol synthesized by the dominant follicle drives down production of FSH starving all other non-dominant follicles causing them to die.
Days 0 -4 of the endometrial cycle is known as the _____ phase
LH acts with which cell of the female follicle?
In which phase of meiosis is a follicle arrested until ovulation?
Withdrawal of what hormone leads to the vasoconstriction that leads to stimuli and vascular cell necrosis of the endometrium
Which cell within the ovarian follicle synthesizes aromatase?
these cells make androgen in the female
endometrium proliferates under the influence of estrogen during this phase of the endometrial cycle
Days 4-14 of the endometrial cycle is known as the _____ phase
How many primordial follicles at puberty?
How long does folliculogenesis last?
During the _____ phase of the ovarian cycle, large antral follicles are recruited and undergo growth to compete for ovulation.
what is the basic unit of female reproductive physiology?
thecal cells begin forming in _____ follicles
True or False: The granulosa cells make androgen precursors.
Which cell type in the ovarian follicle is the main producer of progesterone in the follicular phase?
True or False: Theca and granulosa cells contain LH receptors but only the granulosa cells contain FSH receptors
Which hormone promotes the growth of the endometrium?
The _____ follicle is the one that undergoes ovulation during a menstrual cycle.
Which cell type in the female produces inhibin?
True or False: Progestins acts as negative feedback regulators at the hypothalamus and pituitary.
occurs about 32 to 36 hours after LH surge
primordial follicles undergo initial recruitment to become _____ follicles
How many oocytes are contained in 1 follicle?
Hormone responsible for libido in males and females
True or False: AN increase in pulse frequency and amplitude of GnRH promotes LH release?
During the ____ phase, granulosa cells are the main producer of progesterone.
True or False: Theca cells contain 17a hydroxylase and 17,20 desmolase.
True or False: Granulosa cells contain 17a hydroxylase and 17,20 desmolase.
True or False: Most follicles undergo atresia or apoptosis.
The granulosa cells lack which 2 enzymes?
A rise in the levels of _____ begins the cyclic recruitment phase of follicuolgenesis.
Which hormone acts on the granulosa cells of the follicle?
What enzyme are thecal cells missing that prevents them from converting androgens into estrogen?
This cell catalyzes the conversion of cholesterol to progestins in the female
After ovulation, what phase of meiosis is the oocyte arrested in?
rapid decline in LH and FSH after ovulation is due to the exhaustion of what gland?
True or False: Every menstrual cycle tertiary follicles are recruited to compete for ovulation.
characterized by a squamous granulosa cell layer
During what portion of the menstrual cycle does the oocyte progress to metaphase II?
phase of the ovarian cycle that occurs between days 14 and 28 of the menstrual cycle
maturation of the endometrium occurs during this phase of the endometrial cycle
Days 14-28 of the endometrial cycle is known as the _____ phase
The process of follicle maturation
synthesis and secretion of ZP proteins for the formation of the zona pellicida begins in _____ follicles
Which hormone promotes the maturation of the endometrium?
characterized by a cubodial granulosa cell layer
True or False: Estrogen is critical to closure of epiphyseal plates of both sexes
Dependency on FSH for follicular growth begins at what stage in folliculogenesis? (follicle type)
phase of the ovarian cycle that occurs between days 0 and 14 of the menstrual cycle
When do oocytes finish their meiotic division?
rapid rise in what hormone released by the dominant follicle induces the LH surge?
True or False: During the follicular phase, the granulosa cells are the main producers of progesterone because they are the closest to blood supply.
This hormone stimulates theca cells and granulosa cells to take up LDL cholesterol and its conversion to progestins
