The growth differentiation factor 9 (GDF9), the bone morphogenetic protein 15 (BMP15), members of the family of growth transforming factor [beta] (TGF[beta]), and the basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF2), member of the family of heparin union growth factors with their main receptors, have been involved in dominant follicle selection, regulating important events such as proliferation of granulosa cells, differentiation and steroidogenesis (4,5).
