Systemic signals in aged males exert potent rejuvenating effects on the ovarian follicle reserve in mammalian females


Figure 1. Blood of aged males increases the ovarian follicle reserve in adult females. Non-atretic and atretic immature follicle numbers in ovaries of control (non-parabiotic) YF mice or YF mice 5 weeks after parabiosis with YF, YM or AM mice. Data are the mean ± SEM (n = 3-4 mice per group; *, P < 0.05).
