Follicular Phase, Waves, Oogenesis, and Ovulation Review Quiz
1. Under which of the following
conditions does estradiol have positive feedback. (check all that apply)
2. Where is progesterone produced?
3. A primary folicle has multiple
layers of follicle cells which are called theca and granulosa cells.
4. The growth of a primordial
to primary to secondary follicle is dependent on FSH.
5. A follicle which no longer
converts androgen to estrogen will begin to secrete androgen (testosterone)
that will trigger further atresia of this follicle.
6. During recruitment, which of
the following occur? (check all that apply)
7. During selection which of the
following occur? (check all that apply)
8. If a cow can have 2 or 3 follicluar
waves in an estrous cycle, how many does a human have during a menstrual
9. If the dominant follicle is
destroyed for example by ultrasound guided follicular aspiration or by atresia,
which of the following are true? (check all that apply)
10. FSH increases at about the
time the first dominant follicle of the estrous cycle reaches maximal size
because inhibin production declines at this time.
11. In the ovary, which of the
following cells will divide mitotically.
12. In which of the following
species does ovulation of a secondary oocyte occur? (check all that apply)
13. The germinal vesicle of a
primary oocyte is the nucleus of that oocyte.
14. At which stage of prophase
does the primary oocyte become arrested and progresses no further in meiosis
15. The corona radiata have gap
junctions with the primary oocyte of the preovulatory follicle. The gap junctions
allow the oocyte maturation inhibitor to be transfered to the oocyte to maintain
16. The effect of Oocyte Maturation Inhibitor (OMI) is to maintain
high levels of cAMP in the oocyte and thereby ensure the oocyte remains in
17. Cumulus cells expand around
the oocyte in response to FSH and do so because they produce hyaluronic acid
18. The LH surge causes the breakdown
of tight junctions between corona radiata cells and the oocyte.
19. During the ovulatory process,
the role of prostaglandin is to: (check all that apply)
20. During the ovulatory process,
the role of progesterone is to: (check all that apply).
21. PGF is used to manipulate
22. GnRH is used to manipulate
23. Progestins used to manipulate
