Project Proposal: Problem at hand
What will i be testing during the project?
looking at gonadotrophin
Locating FSH/LH receptors
identifying the quantity of associated factors; i.e. IGF
what is my hypothesis
the ovaries from the poor HC will have a lot more gonadotrophin receptors than that of the good HC.
IGF levels will be higher in the PHC
Low level of PTEN in PHC
female twins will have more receptors than female/male twins
what are the variables involved?
sex of twins
stage of oestrous cycle (post-pubertal twins)
Presence of CL
Broad aims of the project
Identify whether there are any differences in gonadotrohin receptor expression between the treatment groups
identify whether there is an significant relationship between sex of co-twin and then the reproductive axes of the offspring
the specifics of each study; what im hoping to identify
looking for the location and abundance of the gonadotrophin receptors and identify the quantity of the associated factors involved in antral follicle development
