Ovulation is a complex process initiated by the mid-cycle surge of luteinizing hormone (LH). Once initiated, a cascade of events occurs that culminates in the release of a fertilizable oocyte. The complex series of events involves specific ovarian cell types, diverse signaling pathways and temporally controlled expression of specific genes. This review will focus on several genes shown to control the ovulation process.
