The insulin-like growth factor-I is a pleotropic growth factor that modulates cell replication. Insulin-like growth factor-I is produced by granulosa, theca and luteal cells and have autocrine and paracrine actions. It plays a crucial role in animal fertility acting as a monitoring signal. Researches have shown that synergistically with gonadotropins it stimulates the growth, survivability and steroidogenesis of follicular cells.
