ovarian follicle
The egg-containing, fluid-filled sphere (bag) that develops in the ovary and ruptures at ovulation to liberate the ovum.

It is also an endocrine gland, producing estrogens and giving rise after ovulation to corpus luteum. It appears first as a primordial follicle with the oocyte surrounded by a single layer of flattened follicular cells, then by a single layer of cuboidal or columnar cells (called a primary follicle).

Follicles mature at intervals depending on the type of reproductive pattern in response to the folicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) from the anterior lobe of the pituitary.
