dark cycle. Female mice, aged 8–10 weeks, were mated with fertile or vasectomized males to induce pregnancy or pseudopregnancy (day 1 is the day of vaginal plug). From days 1 to 4, pregnancy was confirmed by flushing the embryos from the oviducts or

acquisition of a fluid-filled cavity and an increasing reliance on pituitary-derived follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) for survival ( McGee & Hsueh 2000 ). AMH expression peaks at the small antral stage ( Weenen et al . 2004 ) and the ability of AMH to
