We study the molecular mechanisms involved in ovarian follicle maturation and ovulation. Our ongoing work focuses on identifying the role of gonadotropin-induced posttranslational modification of granulosa cell proteins, in particular, arginine methylation. The ultimate goal of our research is to utilize novel molecular targets to improve ovarian follicle maturation.
