As a result of a balance, relatively low amounts of androgens are produced at that stage of follicle development, which, however, are adequate for estrogen production in the granulosa cells. The latter is facilitated by activin, which enhances the actions of FSH, including FSH-induced mitosis and steroidogenesis (Hillier, 2001). Therefore, activin promotes rapid estrogenization of the follicular environment that is important for the expression of dominance. , 2006). IGFs/IGFBPs In vitro data have suggested that the system of IGFs and the IGFBPs participates in folliculogenesis during the early follicular phase of the cycle.

The rate of secretion is increased while follicular development proceeds, and many studies have shown the importance of these high P4 levels in regulating ovulation (36). It has been suggested that progesterone, and other ovarian steroids, may act upon the ovary in part through influences on cGMP concentrations (37). Progesterone production is induced by LH as it has been shown in rat and porcine cultured GCs, whereas progesterone antagonist, RU486, inhibits luteinization of GCs coming from preovulatory follicles (38).
