 New Scientist Breaking News - Drug boosts egg numbers in mice ovaries
Jonathan Tilly and his team at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston published evidence in March suggesting the ovaries of mice contain cells that behave like germ cells - the cells that give rise to the precursors of eggs.
Tilly also revealed that his team has identified a key gene involved in controlling the development of these cells.
To finally convince the sceptics, Tilly’s team would need to show that the stem cells they have isolated from ovaries could trigger the formation of follicles in test tube experiments, said Alan Trounson, a fertility expert at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.

 Stem cells in bone marrow replenish mouse ovaries
This finding provides direct evidence to overturn a long-held dogma in reproductive biology, that female mice generate egg cells only during fetal development and thus are born with a finite stock of eggs that declines throughout life.
With the help of several genetic markers that are found in germ cells, the master cells that eventually give rise to the egg and sperm, the team shows evidence for the existence of germ cell progenitors, putative stem cells, in mouse bone marrow and blood.
Further results suggest that the ovary itself is sending out a chemical signal to the bone marrow, readying the progenitor cells to travel to the ovary and restock its egg cell supply.
