Folliculogenesis: Quiz


Question 1: Follicles that have fewer ________ will not be able to develop further; they will show retardation of their growth rate and become atretic.
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptorFSH-receptorCALCRLLuteinizing hormone/choriogonadotropin receptor

Question 2: LH induces the production of ________ by the theca cells, most notably androstendione, which are aromatized by granulosa cells to produce estrogens, primarily estradiol.
TestosteroneProgesteroneSex steroidAndrogen

Question 3: This remaining follicle, the preovulatory follicle, ruptures and discharges the oocyte (that has since grown into a ________), ending folliculogenesis.
OocyteImmature ovumMeiosisFertilisation

Question 4: Estradiol and later ________ secreted by these follicles begin to suppress FSH.
Anti-Müllerian hormoneActivin and inhibinLuteinizing hormoneEndocrine system

Question 5: The oocyte is now competent to undergo ________ and will travel down the fallopian tubes to eventually become implanted in the uterus.
EmbryoHuman embryogenesisPrenatal developmentFertilisation

Question 6: Primary follicles develop receptors to ________ (FSH) at this time, but they are gonadotropin-independent up until the antral stage.
EstradiolFollicle-stimulating hormoneHuman chorionic gonadotropinLuteinizing hormone

Question 8: This depletion in follicle supply signals the beginning of the ________.
Menstrual cycleMenopauseOvulationFollicular phase

Question 9: The ruptured follicle will undergo a dramatic transformation into the corpus luteum, a steroidiogenic cluster of cells that maintains the endometrium of the uterus by the secretion of large amounts of progesterone and minor amounts of ________.

Question 10: Contrary to male ________, which can last indefinitely, folliculogenesis ends when the remaining follicles in the ovaries are incapable of responding to the hormonal cues that previously recruited some follicles to mature.
