Immunodetection for CASPASA-3 and TUNEL-assayed in human ovary. a Primordial follicles positive (arrow head) and negative for pro-caspase 3 (400X). b Partial view of an atretic antral follicle negative for pro-caspase 3 (200X). c Panoramic view of cortex ovary showing abundance of primordial follicles positive for cleaved caspase 3 protein (100X). d Atretic antral follicle was positive for cleaved caspase 3 in granulosa and thecal cells (200X). e Apoptotic cells were detected in granulosa and thecal cells of antral follicles (400X). f Partial view of an atretic antral follicle with granulosa cells TUNEL positive (1000X). A: antrum; GC: granulosa cells, IT: internal theca
