Introduction The ovarian follicle is a complex unit consisting of vascularized theca cell layers, a basement membrane or basal lamina, and granulosa cells surrounding a centralized oocyte. Supporting the development and functionality of these

cumulus matrix, which plays a key role in in vivo fertilization ( Salustri et al . 2004 ). In the ovary, HA is to be found not only in the cumulus matrix ( Lo et al . 2019 ) but also in the theca cells and follicular fluid ( Christensen et al . 2015

transcription patterns of genes related to FA metabolism in oocytes, theca cells, granulosa cells, and cumulus cells indicated that the different follicular compartments play different roles in lipid homeostasis. The β-oxidation of FA was reduced in both
