Mullerian Ducts: A pair of ducts near the WOLFFIAN DUCTS in a developing embryo. In the male embryo, they degenerate with the appearance of testicular ANTI-MULLERIAN HORMONE. In the absence of anti-mullerian hormone, mullerian ducts give rise to the female reproductive tract, including the OVIDUCTS; UTERUS; CERVIX; and VAGINA.Mixed Tumor, Mullerian: A tumor, basically a carcinoma with a single sarcoma such as leiomyosarcoma or angiosarcoma or multiple sarcomas of uterine origin. The role of estrogen has been postulated as a possible etiological factor in this tumor. (Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1703)Testicular Hormones: Hormones produced in the testis.Anti-Mullerian Hormone: A glycoprotein that causes regression of MULLERIAN DUCTS. It is produced by SERTOLI CELLS of the TESTES. In the absence of this hormone, the Mullerian ducts develop into structures of the female reproductive tract. In males, defects of this hormone result in persistent Mullerian duct, a form of MALE PSEUDOHERMAPHRODITISM.Adenosarcoma: A malignant neoplasm arising simultaneously or consecutively in mesodermal tissue and glandular epithelium of the same part. (Stedman, 25th ed)Wolffian Ducts: A pair of excretory ducts of the middle kidneys (MESONEPHROI) of an embryo, also called mesonephric ducts. In higher vertebrates, Wolffian ducts persist in the male forming VAS DEFERENS, but atrophy into vestigial structures in the female.Hormones: Chemical substances having a specific regulatory effect on the activity of a certain organ or organs.

Luteinizing hormone regulates steroid production by the interstitial cells of the TESTIS and the OVARY. The preovulatory LUTEINIZING HORMONE surge in females induces OVULATION, and subsequent LUTEINIZATION of the follicle. LUTEINIZING HORMONE consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is common in the three pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH, LH and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity.Receptors, Peptide: Cell surface receptors that bind peptide messengers with high affinity and regulate intracellular signals which influence the behavior of cells.Parathyroid Hormone: A polypeptide hormone (84 amino acid residues) secreted by the PARATHYROID GLANDS which performs the essential role of maintaining intracellular CALCIUM levels in the body.

Upon further tissue-specific processing, ACTH can yield ALPHA-MSH and corticotrophin-like intermediate lobe peptide (CLIP).Uterus: The hollow thick-walled muscular organ in the female PELVIS. It consists of the fundus (the body) which is the site of EMBRYO IMPLANTATION and FETAL DEVELOPMENT. Beyond the isthmus at the perineal end of fundus, is CERVIX UTERI (the neck) opening into VAGINA. Beyond the isthmi at the upper abdominal end of fundus, are the FALLOPIAN TUBES.Receptors, Transforming Growth Factor beta: Cell-surface proteins that bind transforming growth factor beta and trigger changes influencing the behavior of cells.

It regulates the expression of key steroidogenic enzymes.Freemartinism: A condition occurring in the female offspring of dizygotic twins (TWIN, DIZYGOTIC) in a mixed-sex pregnancy, usually in CATTLE. Freemartinism can occur in other mammals. When placental fusion between the male and the female FETUSES permits the exchange of fetal cells and fetal hormones, TESTICULAR HORMONES from the male fetus can androgenize the female fetus producing a sterile XX/XY chimeric "female"(CHIMERISM).Hematometra: Blood-filled UTERUS.Wnt4 Protein: A Wnt protein that is involved in regulating multiple developmental processes such as the formation of the KIDNEY; ADRENAL GLANDS; MAMMARY GLANDS; the PITUITARY GLAND; and the female reproductive system.

After being released into the pituitary portal circulation, GHRF stimulates GH release by the SOMATOTROPHS in the PITUITARY GLAND.Virilism: Development of male secondary SEX CHARACTERISTICS in the FEMALE. It is due to the effects of androgenic metabolites of precursors from endogenous or exogenous sources, such as ADRENAL GLANDS or therapeutic drugs.Corticotropin-Releasing Hormone: A peptide of about 41 amino acids that stimulates the release of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE. CRH is synthesized by neurons in the PARAVENTRICULAR NUCLEUS of the HYPOTHALAMUS.

Their phenotypes range from female, through ambiguous, to male. This concept includes gonadal agenesis.Gonads: The gamete-producing glands, OVARY or TESTIS.Hypothalamic Hormones: Peptide hormones produced by NEURONS of various regions in the HYPOTHALAMUS. They are released into the pituitary portal circulation to stimulate or inhibit PITUITARY GLAND functions. VASOPRESSIN and OXYTOCIN, though produced in the hypothalamus, are not included here for they are transported down the AXONS to the POSTERIOR LOBE OF PITUITARY before being released into the portal circulation.Peptide Hormones: Hormones synthesized from amino acids. They are distinguished from INTERCELLULAR SIGNALING PEPTIDES AND PROTEINS in that their actions are systemic.Pituitary Gland: A small, unpaired gland situated in the SELLA TURCICA. It is connected to the HYPOTHALAMUS by a short stalk which is called the INFUNDIBULUM.Thyroxine: The major hormone derived from the thyroid gland. Thyroxine is synthesized via the iodination of tyrosines (MONOIODOTYROSINE) and the coupling of iodotyrosines (DIIODOTYROSINE) in the THYROGLOBULIN. Thyroxine is released from thyroglobulin by proteolysis and secreted into the blood. Thyroxine is peripherally deiodinated to form TRIIODOTHYRONINE which exerts a broad spectrum of stimulatory effects on cell metabolism.Mesonephros: One of a pair of excretory organs (mesonephroi) which grows caudally to the first pair (PRONEPHROI) during development.

Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.Thyrotropin: A glycoprotein hormone secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Thyrotropin stimulates THYROID GLAND by increasing the iodide transport, synthesis and release of thyroid hormones (THYROXINE and TRIIODOTHYRONINE). Thyrotropin consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is common in the pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH; LUTEINIZING HORMONE and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity.Syndrome: A characteristic symptom complex.Cystadenocarcinoma, Serous: A malignant cystic or semicystic neoplasm.

Some can act on more than one pituitary hormone.Invertebrate Hormones: Hormones produced by invertebrates, usually insects, mollusks, annelids, and helminths.Pituitary Hormones, Posterior: Hormones released from the neurohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, POSTERIOR). They include a number of peptides which are formed in the NEURONS in the HYPOTHALAMUS, bound to NEUROPHYSINS, and stored in the nerve terminals in the posterior pituitary. Upon stimulation, these peptides are released into the hypophysial portal vessel blood.Sarcoma, Endometrial Stromal: A highly malignant subset of neoplasms arising from the endometrial stroma. Tumors in this group infiltrate the stroma with a wide range of atypia cells and numerous mitoses. They are capable of widespread metastases (NEOPLASM METASTASIS).Color: The visually perceived property of objects created by absorption or reflection of specific wavelengths of light.Gonadal Dysgenesis, 46,XY: Defects in the SEX DETERMINATION PROCESS in 46, XY individuals that result in abnormal gonadal development and deficiencies in TESTOSTERONE and subsequently ANTIMULLERIAN HORMONE or other factors required for normal male sex development. This leads to the development of female phenotypes (male to female sex reversal), normal to tall stature, and bilateral streak or dysgenic gonads which are susceptible to GONADAL TISSUE NEOPLASMS. An XY gonadal dysgenesis is associated with structural abnormalities on the Y CHROMOSOME, a mutation in the GENE, SRY, or a mutation in other autosomal genes that are involved in sex determination.Time Factors: Elements of limited time intervals, contributing to particular results or situations.Stereoisomerism: The phenomenon whereby compounds whose molecules have the same number and kind of atoms and the same atomic arrangement, but differ in their spatial relationships. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 5th ed)Endometrial Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of ENDOMETRIUM, the mucous lining of the UTERUS. These neoplasms can be benign or malignant. Their classification and grading are based on the various cell types and the percent of undifferentiated cells.Receptors, Somatotropin: Cell surface proteins that bind GROWTH HORMONE with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells. Activation of growth hormone receptors regulates amino acid transport through cell membranes, RNA translation to protein, DNA transcription, and protein and amino acid catabolism in many cell types. Many of these effects are mediated indirectly through stimulation of the release of somatomedins.Estrogens: Compounds that interact with ESTROGEN RECEPTORS in target tissues to bring about the effects similar to those of ESTRADIOL. Estrogens stimulate the female reproductive organs, and the development of secondary female SEX CHARACTERISTICS. Estrogenic chemicals include natural, synthetic, steroidal, or non-steroidal compounds.Radioimmunoassay: Classic quantitative assay for detection of antigen-antibody reactions using a radioactively labeled substance (radioligand) either directly or indirectly to measure the binding of the unlabeled substance to a specific antibody or other receptor system.

By stimulating the synthesis and distribution of MELANIN in these pigmented cells, they increase coloration of skin and other tissue. MSHs, derived from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC), are produced by MELANOTROPHS in the INTERMEDIATE LOBE OF PITUITARY; CORTICOTROPHS in the ANTERIOR LOBE OF PITUITARY, and the hypothalamic neurons in the ARCUATE NUCLEUS OF HYPOTHALAMUS.DNA: A deoxyribonucleotide polymer that is the primary genetic material of all cells. Eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms normally contain DNA in a double-stranded state, yet several important biological processes transiently involve single-stranded regions. DNA, which consists of a polysugar-phosphate backbone possessing projections of purines (adenine and guanine) and pyrimidines (thymine and cytosine), forms a double helix that is held together by hydrogen bonds between these purines and pyrimidines (adenine to thymine and guanine to cytosine).Broad Ligament: A broad fold of peritoneum that extends from the side of the uterus to the wall of the pelvis.Follicle Stimulating Hormone, beta Subunit: The beta subunit of follicle stimulating hormone.

Paracrine-mediated apoptosis in reproductive tract development. (1/492)

In mammalian development, the signaling pathways that couple extracellular death signals with the apoptotic machinery are still poorly understood. We chose to examine Mullerian duct regression in the developing reproductive tract as a possible model of apoptosis during morphogenesis. The TGFbeta-like hormone, Mullerian inhibiting substance (MIS), initiates regression of the Mullerian duct or female reproductive tract anlagen; this event is essential for proper male sexual differentiation and occurs between embryonic days (E) 14 and 17 in the rat. Here, we show that apoptosis occurs during Mullerian duct regression in male embryos beginning at E15. Female Mullerian ducts exposed to MIS also exhibited prominent apoptosis within 13 h, which was blocked by a caspase inhibitor. In both males and females the MIS type-II receptor is expressed exclusively in the mesenchymal cell layer surrounding the duct, whereas apoptotic cells localize to the epithelium. In addition, tissue recombination experiments provide evidence that MIS does not act directly on the epithelium to induce apoptosis. Based on these data, we suggest that MIS triggers cell death by altering mesenchymal-epithelial interactions.  (+info)

Ptx1 regulates SF-1 activity by an interaction that mimics the role of the ligand-binding domain. (2/492)

Ptx1 (Pitx1) is a bicoid-related homeobox transcription factor expressed from the onset of pituitary development. It was shown to cooperate with cell-restricted factors, such as Pit1, NeuroD1/PanI and steroidogenic factor 1 (SF-1), to establish a combinatorial code conferring lineage- and promoter-specific gene transcription in the pituitary. Transcriptional synergism between Ptx1 and SF-1 on two SF-1 target genes, pituitary luteinizing hormone beta and Mullerian-inhibiting substance (MIS), requires SF-1 binding to DNA and appears to result from direct physical interaction between these two proteins. The interaction between the C-terminus of Ptx1 and the N-terminal half of SF-1 results in transcriptional enhancement that equals the activity of a constitutively active SF-1 mutant and that may mimic the effect of a still unidentified SF-1 ligand. Thus, the unmasking of SF-1 activity by Ptx1 may represent a developmental mechanism to alleviate the need for SF-1 ligand in transcription and, possibly, at critical times during organogenesis.  (+info)

Reversion of the differentiated phenotype and maturation block in Sertoli cells in pathological human testis. (3/492)

To study the relationship between abnormal Sertoli cell differentiation and spermatogenic impairment, we examined the expression of Sertoli cell markers normally lost at puberty, cytokeratin 18 (CK18), anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) and M2A antigen, in three children (aged 1-2 years), 50 adults (aged 19-45 years) with obstructive or non-obstructive azoospermia or oligozoospermia, and six patients (aged 1-18 years) with 5 alpha-reductase deficiency. There was CK18 and/or AMH expression, but never M2A antigen expression, associated with spermatogonial arrest or Sertoli cell-only (SCO) syndrome in infertile men. Loss of M2A antigen suggests the transition of Sertoli cells to an adult phenotype, while CK18 and/or AMH expression may be a manifestation of de-differentiation of Sertoli cells. In 5 alpha-reductase deficiency, there was a sequential loss of CK18, M2A antigen and AMH around puberty, associated with partial spermatogenesis. The persistence of immature Sertoli cells expressing M2A antigen was associated with prepubertal seminiferous cords and SCO syndrome. Therefore, 5 alpha-reductase deficiency may prevent the maturation of Sertoli cells, resulting in impairment of spermatogenesis, and loss of M2A antigen expression coincides with a critical step in the Sertoli cell maturation. High follicle stimulating hormone concentrations due to failure of normal Sertoli cell differentiation indicate a normal development pattern of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis.  (+info)

Anti-Mullerian hormone as a seminal marker for spermatogenesis in non-obstructive azoospermia. (4/492)

Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) also known as Mullerian inhibiting substance or factor, is a Sertoli cell-secreted glycoprotein responsible in male embryos for Mullerian duct regression. However, its role in adults remains unknown. AMH seminal concentrations have been evaluated using an enzyme-linked immunoassay in three groups of young men: group 1, fertile donors (n = 18); group 2, obstructive azoospermia (n = 9) after vasectomy or associated with deferent duct agenesia; and group 3, non-obstructive azoospermia with spermatogenesis deficiency and normal karyotype (n = 23). AMH was present in seminal plasma of most fertile donors at concentrations ranging from undetectable (<3.5 pmol/l) up to 543 pmol/l (geometric mean: 153 pmol/l), higher than the serum level (range <3.5 up to 67 pmol/l, geometric mean: 10.7 pmol/l, n = 13). Seminal AMH concentrations were undetectable in all obstructive azoospermic patients, confirming its testicular origin. In non-obstructive azoospermia (group 3), seminal AMH concentration was lower (range <3. 5-68.5 pmol/l, geometric mean: 17 pmol/l) than in fertile donors (P < 0.003) without correlation with plasma follicle stimulating hormone values. In group 3, comparison of seminal AMH concentration and the results of histological analysis of testicular biopsies revealed that undetectable AMH found in 14 cases was associated in 11 of them with lack of spermatozoa, while detectable concentrations of AMH (10-68.5 pmol/l) found in nine cases were associated in seven of them with persistent spermatogenesis. In the adult, AMH is secreted preferentially towards the seminiferous lumen. Although its relationship with spermatogenesis requires further investigation, our results suggest that seminal AMH may represent a non-invasive marker of persistent hypospermatogenesis in cases of non-obstructive azoospermia which may indicate the likely success of testicular spermatozoa recovery before intracytoplasmic sperm injection.  (+info)

Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction analysis of genes involved in gonadal differentiation in pigs. (5/492)

In mammals, testis development is initiated in the embryo as a response to the expression of the sex-determining gene, SRY. The time course of SRY expression during gonadal differentiation in the male has been described in detail only in mice and sheep. In this study, we used reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction analysis to define the SRY transcription profile in pig genital ridges. SRY transcripts were first detectable from 23 days postcoitum (dpc), then declined sharply after 35 dpc. None were detected at 60 dpc. In addition, we analyzed temporal expression of other genes known to be involved in mammalian sex determination: WT-1, SF-1, SOX9, and AMH. A key stage seems to be 28 dpc, in which SOX9 expression switches between the male and female, and AMH expression begins to attest to Sertoli cell differentiation and to correspond to seminiferous cord formation in the male. Expression of gonadotropin receptors and aromatase was also investigated in porcine gonads, and we showed that their transcripts were detected very early on, especially in the male: 25 dpc for the LH receptor (rLH) and aromatase, and 28 dpc for the FSH receptor (rFSH). In the female, aromatase transcripts were not detected until 70 dpc, and rFSH expression occurred later: at 45 dpc at the onset of meiosis. Moreover, no difference was observed between the sexes for the onset of rLH transcription at 25 dpc. Such a thorough study has never been performed on pigs; developmental analysis will be useful for investigating sex-reversed gonads and determining ontogeny in intersexuality, a common pathology in pigs.  (+info)

Targeted mutagenesis of the endogenous mouse Mis gene promoter: in vivo definition of genetic pathways of vertebrate sexual development. (6/492)

Mutations were introduced into conserved steroidogenic factor 1 (SF1)- and SOX9-binding sites within the endogenous mouse Mullerian inhibiting substance (Mis) promoter. Male mice homozygous for the mutant SF1-binding site correctly initiated Mis transcription in fetal testes, although at significantly reduced levels. Surprisingly, sufficient MIS was produced to eliminate the MUllerian ducts. In contrast, males homozygous for the mutant SOX9-binding site did not initiate Mis transcription, resulting in pseudohermaphrodites. These studies suggest an essential role for SOX9 in the initiation of Mis transcription, whereas SF1 appears to act as a quantitative regulator of Mis transcript levels, perhaps for influencing non-Mullerian duct tissues. Comparative studies of Mis expression in vertebrates indicate that the Mis promoter receives transcriptional inputs that vary between species but result in the same functional readout.  (+info)

Human ovarian cancer, cell lines, and primary ascites cells express the human Mullerian inhibiting substance (MIS) type II receptor, bind, and are responsive to MIS. (7/492)

Six human ovarian cancer cell lines and samples of ascites cells isolated from 27 patients with stage III or IV ovarian papillary serous cystadenocarcinoma were studied individually to test whether recombinant human Mullerian inhibiting substance (rhMIS) acts via its receptor. To do these experiments, we scaled up production of rhMIS and labeled it successfully with biotin for binding studies, cloned the human MIS type II receptor for mRNA detection, and raised antibodies to an extracellular domain peptide for protein detection. These probes were first tested on the human ovarian cancer cell lines and then applied to primary ovarian ascites cells. rhMIS inhibited colony growth of five of six cell lines that expressed the human MIS type II receptor mRNA by Northern analysis while not inhibiting receptor-negative COS cells. Flow cytometry performed on MIS-sensitive ovarian cancer cell lines demonstrated specific and saturable binding of rhMIS (Kd = 10.2 nM). Ascites cells from 15 of 27 or 56% of patients tested bound biotinylated MIS (MIS-biotin) and, of the 11 that grew in soft agarose, 9 of 11 or 82% showed statistically significant inhibition of colony formation. Of the 15 patients who bound biotinylated MIS, mRNA was available for analysis from 9, and 8 of 9 expressed MIS type II receptor mRNA by reverse transcription-PCR, showing a statistically significant correlation, compared with binding, by chi2 analysis (P = 0.025). Solid ovarian cancers were positive for the MIS type II receptor protein by immunohistochemical staining, which colocalized with staining for antibody to CA-125 (OC-125). Thus, the detection of the MIS type I receptor by flow cytometry may be a useful predictor of therapeutic response to MIS and may be a modality to rapidly choose patients with late-stage ovarian cancer for treatment with MIS.  (+info)

Postnatal sex reversal of the ovaries in mice lacking estrogen receptors alpha and beta. (8/492)

Mice lacking estrogen receptors alpha and beta were generated to clarify the roles of each receptor in the physiology of estrogen target tissues. Both sexes of alphabeta estrogen receptor knockout (alphabetaERKO) mutants exhibit normal reproductive tract development but are infertile. Ovaries of adult alphabetaERKO females exhibit follicle transdifferentiation to structures resembling seminiferous tubules of the testis, including Sertoli-like cells and expression of Mullerian inhibiting substance, sulfated glycoprotein-2, and Sox9. Therefore, loss of both receptors leads to an ovarian phenotype that is distinct from that of the individual ERKO mutants, which indicates that both receptors are required for the maintenance of germ and somatic cells in the postnatal ovary.  (+info)

Anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) has been shown to be a reliable marker of ovarian reserve because levels demonstrate a consistent age-related decline and do not fluctuate throughout the menstrual cycle. In prior studies measuring markers other than AMH, tubal ligation has been shown to have an adverse effect on ovarian reserve.. The primary aim of this study will be to compare the rates of anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) decline following tubal ligation, Essure placement, and levonorgestrel IUDs, and then identifying any and all differences that these specific contraceptive methods have on the changes of AMH rates over time. The secondary aim will focus on analyzing the various types of tubal ligation methods (i.e. coagulation, ligation, clips, bands, etc.) to see if different techniques result in any difference in the rate of AMH decline. The hypothesis is that tubal ligation will result in an accelerated rate of AMH decline as compared to other long-term or permanent contraceptive methods. ...
At a mean age of 38.1 years, the median (interquartile range) AMH level for the cohort was 0.92 [1.35] ng/mL for the Gen II assay, 1.68 [2.30] ng/mL for the Ultrasensitive assay, and 1.52 [2.41] ng/mL for the picoAMH assay. Significantly higher proportions of detectable AMH levels were observed with the picoAMH kit (97%) compared with both the Gen II (84%) and Ultrasensitive (92%) assays. Although the AMH results were highly correlated among the assays (r = 0.92-0.99), the Gen II AMH levels were consistently lower than both Ultrasensitive and picoAMH levels. Moreover, as AMH levels increased, the magnitude of difference grew larger between Gen II and each of the other two assays.. Conclusion(s): ...

In this present study, we compared the AMH levels among four groups according to the presence of PCOS and PCOM. Serum AMH level was the highest in group 1 (HA + OM + PCOM) and the lowest in group 4 (control). Women with PCOS had higher serum AMH levels than did regular cycling women, regardless of the presence of PCOM, and women with PCOM had higher serum AMH levels than did women without PCOM, regardless of the presence of PCOS.. AMH was positively associated with HA only in women with PCOS, not in regular cycling women regardless of the presence of PCOM. We also observed that serum AMH level did not differ between the five age groups (, 20, 20 to 24, 25 to 29, 30 to 34, and ≥ 35 years). The AMH optimal cutoff value for PCOS diagnosis was 10.5 ng/mL in young Korean women.. The association of AMH level with HA observed in our study was consistent with the finding of previous studies that AMH level was positively correlated with symptom severity in PCOS [19,20]. AMH concentration was previously ...

CONTEXT: The interindividual variation in the age-related decline of ovarian follicles is wide. Hence, it is important to identify reliable, sensitive, and specific markers to assess the ovarian reserve of the individual woman. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to characterize the relation between age and ovarian reserve parameters in a population of healthy women with regular menstrual cycle. DESIGN AND SETTING: We conducted a prospective, population-based, cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 366 health care workers aged 21-41 years employed at a University Hospital were included. Interventions: There were no interventions. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) concentration, antral follicle count (AFC), antral follicle size categories (small: 2-4 mm; intermediate: 5-7 mm; and large: 8-10 mm), and ovarian volume were measured. RESULTS: Serum AMH level declined by 5.6% per year (95% confidence interval 3.7-7.4%, P , .001), AFC (2-10 mm) declined by 4.4% per ...

Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) Fertility Test. The Anti-Mullerian Hormone is a substance secreted by the granulosa cells in the developing egg sacs (ovarian follicles). When a woman grows older, her number of ovarian follicles begins to decrease; therefore, the amount of AMH in the blood decreases.
Dr. Frank Yelian from Life IVF Center discusses how doctors make the diagnosis of diminished ovarian reserve. In order to diagnosis diminished ovarian reserve the doctor will do an ultrasound to measure the womans antral follicle count, as well as measuring a womans FSH and AMH levels via a blood test. These three specific objective measurements will help diagnose diminished ovarian reserve.

In recent years, exciting progress has been made towards unravelling the complex intraovarian control mechanisms that, in concert with systemic signals, coordinate the recruitment, selection and growth of follicles from the primordial stage through to ovulation and corpus luteum formation. A plethora of growth factors, many belonging to the transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β ) superfamily, are expressed by ovarian somatic cells and oocytes in a developmental, stage-related manner and function as intraovarian regulators of folliculogenesis. Two such factors, bone morphogenetic proteins, BMP-4 and BMP-7, are expressed by ovarian stromal cells and/or theca cells and have recently been implicated as positive regulators of the primordial-to-primary follicle transition. In contrast, evidence indicates a negative role for anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH, also known as Mullerian-inhibiting substance) of pre-granulosa/granulosa cell origin in this key event and subsequent progression to the antral stage. ...
Test results revealing low AMH levels indicate reduced egg quantity (ovarian reserve), but egg quality and chances for a healthy pregnancy may remain good.
Diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) is a term used to denote that the decrease in the oocyte pool has reached a level in which it impairs fertility. DOR occurs even in women with regular menstrual cycles. Those who are diagnosed with DOR can be counseled that they will have a lower response to stimulating medications, a higher cancellation rate, and a lower chance of pregnancy after an IVF cycle than an age-matched woman whose ovarian reserve testing is normal. Although it would be helpful if ovarian reserve testing reflected both the quality and quantity of the oocytes that remain (and are available for that particular patient), there is a stronger association between the outcome of the tests and the quantity of oocytes available, not their quality or competence. Research on the predictive value of the existing tests is mostly undertaken in the setting of a high-risk population, i.e. those who present to infertility centers, and caution should be taken when extrapolating these results to a ...
Animal and experimental data suggest that anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) serves as a marker of ovarian reserve and inhibits the growth of ovarian tumors. However, few epidemiologic studies have examined the association between AMH and ovarian cancer risk. We conducted a nested case-control study of 302 ovarian cancer cases and 336 matched controls from nine cohorts. Prediagnostic blood samples of premenopausal women were assayed for AMH using a picoAMH enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated using multivariable-adjusted conditional logistic regression. AMH concentration was not associated with overall ovarian cancer risk. The multivariable-adjusted OR (95% CI), comparing the highest to the lowest quartile of AMH, was 0.99 (0.59-1.67) (Ptrend : 0.91). The association did not differ by age at blood draw or oral contraceptive use (all Pheterogeneity : ≥0.26). There also was no evidence for heterogeneity of risk for tumors defined by

You may have low ovarian reserve but the good news is, that quality is related to age, not FSH or AMH numbers. You are young (under 35 is young) and any eggs you get are likely to be high in quality. I agree an AMH of 2 is good.... did you perhaps mean 0.2? My AMH has been 0.9-1.0 and FSH is 6.6. But I am 38 years old. The good news is, it really does only take ONE. Antral follicle count can change too. Ive had anywhere from 15-22. Thats a 46% difference!

Several recent studies report the detrimental effect of endometrioma excision on the ovarian reserve. Surgical technique and the excessive use of bipolar coagulation could be the key factors. Single-port access laparoscopy (SPAL) ovarian cystectomy has been reported as a comparable procedure to conventional laparoscopy in terms of operative outcomes. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the single-port surgery affects the ovarian reserve whilst performing laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy for unilateral endometrioma. This was a prospective, case-control study of 99 women with unilateral endometrioma. Forty-nine women underwent single-port cystectomy and 50 women underwent multiport laparoscopic (MPL) conventional cystectomy. The primary outcome was the assessment of the ovarian reserve. We evaluated the serum anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) levels before, 4-6 weeks and 3 months after surgery. At T2 we performed an ultrasound assessment of the antral follicular count (AFC). We have drawn ...
CONTEXT: Ovulation induction in patients with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HH) is a challenge to the treating physician. The threshold for ovarian response in HH may differ substantially from that of normal patients. To reach that threshold levels of follicle stimulating hormone, in a step-up protocol longer duration of stimulation is required in some cases so as to prevent multiple pregnancy and to eliminate the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. AIM: To evaluate the duration of stimulation, quality of oocytes, and embryo, and the pregnancy outcome in the assisted reproductive technology (ART) cycles in patients with HH. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Over the period of 4 years, we had 14 patients with HH in whom 21 cycles of ovulation induction were done. Of these 7 patients underwent oocyte retrieval and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). We present a retrospective study of these 7 patients who underwent ART to evaluate the duration of stimulation, quality of oocytes and embryo, and ...
The feminist movement of the last three decades has proven without a doubt that women can "have it all" -education, career, and family. While struggling to fit "it all" into our 20s and early 30s however, the incessant tick-tock-tick-tock of our proverbial biological clocks can be deafening for many. Now, Broer and colleagues have developed a nomogram based on serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) concentrations that is highly predictive for the timing of menopause. This new tool offers some women the option of hitting the snooze button on their biological clock. AMH is a hormone that is secreted by ovarian granulosa cells and plays a critical role in the embryonic development of the female reproductive tract. In the adult, serum AMH concentrations are strongly associated with the number of ovarian follicles, which is directly related to fertility. Follicular development and ovulation are also closely regulated by the pituitary hormone follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). Rising serum ...

[more ▼]. Murine double minute 2 and 4 (Mdm2, Mdm4) are major p53-negative regulators, preventing thus uncontrolled apoptosis induction in numerous cell types, although their function in the female germ line has received little attention. In the present work, we have generated mice with specific invalidation of Mdm2 and Mdm4 genes in the mouse oocyte (Mdm2(Ocko) and Mdm4(Ocko) mice), to test their implication in survival of these germ cells. Most of the Mdm2(Ocko) but not Mdm4(Ocko) mice were sterile, with a dramatic reduction of the weight of ovaries and genital tract, a strong increase in follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone serum levels, and a reduction of anti-mullerian hormone serum levels. Histological analyses revealed an ...
Day 3 FSH blood test checks ovarian reserve - egg supply. There are better ovarian reserve tests, but day 3 FSH, LH and estradiol levels are commonly used.
For this study, AMH levels were measured in 144 healthy, fertile women and the data were used to determine an estimate of mean AMH as a function of age. This information was then used to estimate the distribution of the age of menopause in a sample of 3,384 women between the ages of 50 and 70. Researchers were then able to develop a model based on AMH level and age that could predict age at menopause for individual women ...

Who doesnt like a good gooey, moist, chocolate-filled chocolate chip cookie? The more chips the better, says every part of your body but your tush! The same can be said for the follicles (and eggs) in your ovaries. The more, the better-at least most of the time! A big part of the fertility assessment is ovarian reserve. You probably hear your fertility doctor throw this term around like its candy (or cookies! ): "Your ovarian reserve looks good!" "Your ovarian reserve is not so good." You may be nodding and thinking, "What in the world are they talking about?" Ovarian reserve is the medical way of saying how many eggs you have and what their quality is. While most of our assessment comes from hormones and blood work (cue FSH and AMH), a big "bite of the cookie" comes from our ultrasound. This ingredient is as basic as sugar and flour to making a finger-licking calorie worth its cookie.. An ultrasound performed in the early part of your menstrual cycle (a.k.a. the follicular phase) can tell us ...
Canine ovarian remnant syndrome (ORS) is a diagnosis that veterinarians consider when a spayed bitch shows signs that she is still under the influence of ovarian hormones, thus indicating she has retained some functional ovarian tissue. Before surgical exploration is considered, the veterinarian will want to have strong evidence that an ovarian remnant is present. Current diagnostic tests for ORS have limitations, and this research will thoroughly evaluate a new line of testing: anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) combined with progesterone. Dr. Place�s laboratory was the first to demonstrate that AMH effectively distinguishes between spayed and intact dogs. When combined with progesterone testing, preliminary data suggest that AMH is also effective in determining if a spayed bitch has an ovarian remnant. The ovaries are the sole source of AMH in mammals, and therefore, a positive AMH test indicates the presence of ovarian tissue. Interestingly, the ovarian structure that develops after ovulation, the corpus

Low level laser therapy (LLLT) continues to show some promise for women struggling with infertility.The mechanism behind laser for fertility is as follows:
Because AMH levels correlate with the number of ovarian follicles, the test is a good predictor of ovarian reserve. Researchers have found that women with higher concentrations of AMH have a better response to ovarian stimulation and are likely to produce more eggs for IVF (in vitro fertilization) than women with low or undetectable AMH. Also, unlike follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), the levels of AMH in the blood do not fluctuate as much; therefore the test can be done at any point during the menstrual cycle ...

But thats the thing. Why wait until youre in your 40s to find out? Why not have a better understanding of where you fall on the spectrum by the time youre 35?. These blood tests for FSH and AMH, as well as an antral follicle count (AFC), which assess your fertility potential, are far from foolproof - they may predict a problem when theres none - but wouldnt you want some information, however imperfect, sooner rather than later? (And if theres no problem, that may be just the time to freeze - younger eggs always being better than older ones.). You might want to take these tests to avoid what happened to L.A. actress and writer Sarah Fizeli, who wrote last year on XO Jane "I Went to Freeze My Eggs and They Told Me I Dont Have Any Left." Her AMh at 40, was, undetectable. "If only Id frozen my eggs at age 30, when I was ready but my husband wasnt. Or age 33. Or 35.".

Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), also known as Müllerian-inhibiting hormone (MIH), is a glycoprotein hormone structurally related to inhibin and activin from the transforming growth factor beta superfamily, whose key roles are in growth differentiation and folliculogenesis. In humans, the gene for AMH is AMH, on chromosome 19p13.3, while the gene AMHR2 codes for its receptor on chromosome 12. AMH is activated by SOX9 in the Sertoli cells of the male fetus. Its expression inhibits the development of the female reproductive tract, or Müllerian ducts (paramesonephric ducts), in the male embryo, thereby arresting the development of fallopian tubes, uterus, and upper vagina. AMH expression is critical to sex differentiation at a specific time during fetal development, and appears to be tightly regulated by nuclear receptor SF-1, transcription GATA factors, sex-reversal gene DAX1, and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). Mutations in both the AMH gene and the type II AMH receptor have been shown to ...
I prefer to end my week either on a high note or hell, why not just high.. However, since Im now a responsible adult with a child, Ill be selecting the high note.. There are several tests out there to help physicians determine a womans Ovarian Reserve (cache of eggs). We have the AFC: Antral Follicle Count - Presumably, the number of antral follicles visible on ultrasound is indicative of the relative number of microscopic (and sound asleep) primordial follicles remaining in the ovary. Each primordial follicle contains an immature egg that can potentially develop in the future. In other words, when there are only a few antral follicles visible, there are less eggs remaining as compared to when there are more antral follicles visible. As women age, they have less eggs (primordial follicles) remaining, therefore they have less antral follicles visible on ultrasound. (1). We have the CD3 FSH:. Day 3 Follicle Stimulating Hormone - By measuring a baseline FSH on day 3 of the cycle (we do it on ...

Accurate and comprehensive female blood hormone testing can reliably predict the ovarian reserve of the eggs along with an ultrasound scan. Blood Testing will check FSH, LH, Estradiol and AMH levels between days 1-5 of your period along with an internal scan to assess the follicles in your ovaries (AFC). This also helps with deciding the dosage of medications, should you require ongoing fertility treatments. When drugs are used to stimulate the ovary an ultrasound scan is also usually performed to make sure that the ovary is not over-stimulated or in order to avoid the risk of multiple pregnancy.. ...

Background: Mullerian anomalies are relatively common and contributing to the problems of infertility and poor pregnancy outcomes. But their molecular pathophysiology has been insufficiently studied. On the other hand, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is found in nearly 80% of women with hyperandrogenism and also in 8%-25% of normal ones. It seems that anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) which inhibits the formation of the mullerian ducts in male increases in women with PCOS. Therefore, the aim of the study is whether PCOS is associated with mullerian anomalies. Methods: In this case-control study, 83 women with PCOS and 83 cases without PCOS were evaluated with transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) for the diagnosis of mullerian anomalies. The results of each group were compared with other groups. Results: In the PCOS patients, TVS revealed mullerian anomalies in the uterine cavity in 29 out of 83 women. Among 29 patients who had lesions in their uterine cavity, 27 cases had septate uterus and two had

Methods: Ovaries from reproductive-aged and older C57BL/6J mice fed normal chow (NC) or high-fat (HF) diet, ovaries from age-matched young MCP-1 knockout and young control mice on NC, and finally, cumulus and mural granulosa cells (GCs) from women who underwent in vitro fertilization (IVF) were collected. Kiss1, kiss1r, anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH), and AMH receptor (AMHR-II) messenger RNA (mRNA) expression levels were quantified using real-time polymerase chain reaction ...
Theres a very interesting difference between Western and Chinese medicine on how fertility is viewed. Western doctors tend to focus on the cycle in which your eggs are produced (e.g. the cycle in which you do IVF), whereas Chinese medicine takes a much more long-term view.. To help understand the difference in thinking, heres a quick (and hopefully not too inaccurate) summary of where eggs come from.. The process starts about a year before you actually ovulate, when a bunch of primordial follicles are recruited within the ovary. These are developed very very slowly over the course of several months.. At about three months before ovulation, these primordial follicles start a different phase in their development and are now known as antral follicles. At the very start of any given cycle, an ultrasound will show several small antral follicles that are ready to go. In fact, this antral follicle count (AFC) is a good rough indicator of your ovarian reserve - check out this guide to how AFC ...
All the women had both their ovaries and none of them were pregnant or breastfeeding when blood was drawn to measure AMH levels. The researchers found that women with a BRCA1 mutation had AMH levels that were 25% lower, on average, than women from BRCA1 families who didnt have the mutation. "This means that women in their mid 30s who carry the BRCA1 mutation, have, on average, ovarian reserves similar to those of non-carriers who are two years older," said Dr. Kelly-Anne Phillips, medical oncologist at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Center in East Melbourne. "Our findings suggest that women carrying the BRCA1 mutation should try to avoid delaying pregnancy until their late 30s or 40s when fertility is reduced anyway because of their age. For women trying to conceive in their 20s, any difference in ovarian reserve between BRCA1 mutation carriers and non-carriers is unlikely to be of clinical significance. "Still, its important to remember that AMH is only one indicator of a womans potential ...

Usaha TTC masih lagi saya teruskan. Cuba sedaya upaya untuk terus konsisten. Selepas fail untuk proceed IVF yang lepas, doktor suruh datang balik buat appointment dan dicadangkan untuk saya ambik test AMH (Anti Mullerian Hormone). Ujian ini membantu untuk menganggarkan ovarian reserve dengan mengukur bilangan folikel membangun dalam ovari pada masa tertentu. Dalam masa 2 minggu dah dapat resut. Resultnya ialah bacaan AMH saya tersangatlah rendah berbanding umur saya yang tak lah tua sangat.....bacaan AMH saya ialah 1.2. AMH rendah ni maksudnya bilangan telur rendah atau penurunan dalam bilangan telur, berkurangan pengeluaran dan kemudian berhenti sebagai folikel berkembang. Sedih kan.......dan doktor inform maybe sebab saya pernah kena infection masa akhir tahun 2013 yang lepas dan bagi kesan pada perkembangan telur saya.

stomach all the time and continually takes hot, fiery, spicy foods, incompatible combinations, and constantly smothers the various discomforts with powders, antacids, and other drugs that have no business in the stomach whatsoever. How long do you think it would take for that stomach to heal?" My friend did not answer the question and, as far as I know, he continued to take his palliatives.. But I think I made my point that by continual interference, no matter whether the lesion is the evolution of a disease process or whether it is the result of accident or injury, healing cannot be effected. Healing, we must contend, is a fundamental biological process and is directly related to the soundness and general functional vigor of the individual. Certain external factors are required but it must be emphasized that these external factors are secondary to the internal factors. The internal factors are related to our general level of health, our functional efficiency, our basic vitality.. I am sure we ...
Background: Klinefelter syndrome (KS) is the commonest sex chromosomal disorder. Characteristic features include male phenotype with hypogonadism and progressive testicular failure, gynaecomastia and learning difficulties. The association between mediastinal germ cell tumours (GCT-M) and KS is well established, with KS occurring in 20% of GCT-M patients and the reported incidence of GCT-M in KS being 1.5 per 1000 (Nichols, 1991). Genital anomalies are also known to be rarely observed in KS (Lee et al., 2007).. We report two unusual presentations of KS.. Case 1: A baby, with an antenatal diagnosis of KS (47, XXY), was born to non-consanguineous parents with normal female genitalia showing no evidence of clitoromegaly, labial fusion or palpable gonads, with separate urethral and vaginal openings. Antenatal counselling had prepared parents for a male infant. A poor testosterone response to HCG stimulation, low anti-mullerian hormone and markedly elevated gonadotrophins were consistent with gonadal ...
During operation for a right inguinal hernia, a baby boy aged 3 months was discovered to have internal female genitalia. Biopsies were taken from the gonads and blood was sent for karyotyping. The biopsies showed normal testicular tissue and the karyotyping result was 46XY, so the diagnosis of persistent Mullerian duct syndrome (PMDS) was made. Recovery was uneventful. At the age of 2 he underwent bilateral orchidopexy. PMDS is a rare disorder of the MIF synthesis or receptor. Patients present with cryptorchism, inguinal herniation of Mullerian structures, or problems related to the abnormal urinary tract, such as infection or stone formation. In cryptorchism, orchidopexy and life-long palpatory follow-up are advised. If urological symptoms occur, surgical removal of the Mullerian remnants may be considered. The prognosis for fertility is poor ...

Background: Hypogonadism is one of the most frequent endocrine complication after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). In some patients hypogonadism could be transient, but very often coexists with prematury ovarian failure. Classical methods used in the diagnostics of hypogonadism have limitations for the prognosis of ovarian reserve.. Objective: The aim of the study was to assess ovarian reserve in patients after HSCT using evaluation of anti-Muellerian hormone (AMH) with comparison to classical hormonal methods..
