Germinal lining gives rise to? - Follicular cells What converts androstenedione into estrogen? - Aromatase How is LH (leutinizing hormone) and FSH (follicle-stiumulating hormone) regulated? -  Estradiol, progesterone, activin, and inhibin regulate LH/FSH release; in turn, regulate  estrogen levels in blood; primary to secondary oocytes; Meiosis (I) What is mural granulosa? - The outside layer of the follicle; surrounds the antrum at  secondary follicle stage; highly striated FSH function? - FSH gives LH receptors to theca interna to allow for androstenedione to  be secreted to create estrodiol; What is stigma? - Ovarian cortex loses blood through CT degeneration; antrum and  peritoneal cavity become continuous Layers of the uterus? - Endometrium, Myometrium, Perimetrium
