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

Hormone responsible for libido in males and females
When do oocytes finish their meiotic division?
True or False: Estrogen is critical to closure of epiphyseal plates of both sexes
endometrium proliferates under the influence of estrogen during this phase of the endometrial cycle
