The expression of genes related to folliculogenesis (FIGLA, KIT-L, GDF9 and FSHR) was evaluated using real-time RT- PCR before and after two weeks of in vitro culture period.
Gene expression in ovarian tissue: As the results demonstrated (Table 3), among the studied genes, the ratios of expression of GDF-9, FIGLA, KIT-L and FSHR genes to [beta]-actin gene in non-vitrified group before culturing were 24.5x[10.sup.-4], 65x[10.sup.-4], 61x[10.sup.-4], 17.8x[10.sup.-4] and in vitrified group were 22.8x[10.sup.-4], 60x[10.sup.-4], 58x[10.sup.-4], 15.8x[10.sup.-4], respectively.
