The origins and lineages of somatic cells in mammalian ovaries are poorly understood and not universally agreed upon. By clonally-isolating different phenotypes of bovine fetal stromal cells and conducting microarray analysis, we identified markers of different somatic cells. Antibodies to these markers, markers of other known cell types in fetal ovaries and to extracellular matrix were used to examine bovine ovaries (60–300 days of gestation, n=51) by immunohistoc...
