The cyclic nature of the female reproduction process depends to a considerable degree on the unique capacity of ovarial follicles to change their structure and function. The diffentiation process during folliculogenesis takes place in all parts of the follicle. Granulosa cells reflect a high degree of structural changes and play an important role in functional maturation of the inert follicle. Changes in the reaction to endocrine and paracrine effects from a unique environment that is inevitably necessary for oocyte growth and ovulation were reached by changes in the biochemical activity and the internal anatomic mutual relation of the follicle (L i n d e r et al., 1976
