Fragmin/protamine microparticles (F/P MPs) approximately 0.5-1 mu M in diameter were prepared by the simple mixing of fragmin with protamine. This study investigated the effects of F/P MP-containing collagen gels as a hormone carrier on the formation of antral follicle-like structures and on the development of growing bovine oocytes. The supplementation of F/P MPs in collagen gels contributed to the beneficial effects of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) on the formation and size of antral follicle-like structures. The F/P MPs may serve as potential hormone carriers for the growth of cultured bovine oocytes from early antral follicles.
