Table 1 Concentrations of estradiol-17β and progesterone, and protein content in the follicular fluid of cystic and normal follicles

From: Studies on substantially increased proteins in follicular fluid of bovine ovarian follicular cysts using 2-D PAGE and MALDI-TOF MS

  Concentration (ng/mL) of Estradiol-17β/progesterone Protein content (mg/mL)
  Estradiol-17β Progesterone   
Normal (n = 3) 150.3 ± 115.8 57.5 ± 57.9 3.09 ± 2.85 87.6a
Cystic (n = 4) 59.4 ± 108.5 284.7 ± 181.8* 0.80 ± 1.55 83.1 ± 9.7
  1. All data are expressed as mean ± standard error except for protein contents of normal follicles
  2. a Protein content was measured using a pooled sample of three normal follicles.
  3. * Value of cystic FF is significantly different from value of normal FF (p < 0.05)
