Figure 6

Mean (± sed) (A) log10 progesterone production by theca cells after 48 hours; (B) log10 androstenedione production by theca cells after 144 hours; (C) log10 oestradiol production by theca cells after 48 and (D) 144 hours in serum free culture supplemented with either 0, 10 or 100 ng/ml hSCF ± 5 oocytes per well. Values are from 3 independent cultures, each having 4 replicates. There was a significant effect of treatment in (A): P = 0.002, (B): P < 0.001, (C): P = 0.031 and (D): P < 0.001. Bars with different superscripts are significantly (P < 0.05) different.
