Primordial follicles in feline ovary.
Description:Beneath the surface epithelium of the ovary is a thick layer of dense connective tissue, the tunica albuginea. The primordial oocytes cluster together in a cellular stroma. Each primordial follicle contains an oocyte surrounded by a flat layer of follicular cells. Deeper into the cortex is a primary follicle that contains a large oocyte surrounded by a layer of cuboidal follicular cells. PK1452. Original mag. 50x H&E. Primordial and primary follicles. Cortex.
