Detection of pro-apoptotic BAX protein in adolescent human ovary. a Primordial follicles show BAX protein in granulosa cells and in the germ-cell proper (200X). b The signal persists in primary follicle (1000X) and c) secondary follicle (400X). d Partial view of a luteum body positive for BAX (400X). e Western blot analysis of human ovarian BAX protein (23 kD). f Western blot quantification of BAX protein. This protein was detectable in all samples. GLC: granulosa-luteal cells
