Using immunocytochemical techniques for the localization of transforming growth factor-β1 in the quail ovary, we observed immunostaining predominantly in the ooplasm of oocytes, in the zona radiata of developing oocytes, and in granulosa cells. In pre-ovulatory follicles, immunoreactivity was also detected in the theca interna. Some immunostained granulosa and thecal cells were found in the wall of post-ovulatory follicles. It is suggested that, as in mammals, transforming growth factor-β1 is a paracrine and autocrine modulator of granulosa and oocyte maturation.
