AbstractCommunication between mammalian oocytes and their surrounding granulosa cells through the Kit-Kit ligand (KL, or stem cell factor, SCF) system has been shown to be crucial for follicular development. Our previous studies (Reddy et al. 2005, Liu et al. 2006) have indicated that the intra-oocyte KL-Kit-P13 kinase (P13K)-Akt-Foxo3a cascade may play an important role in follicular activation and early development. In the present study, using in situ hybridization and in vitro culture of growing oocytes from 8-day-old postnatal mice, we have demonstrated that another Akt substrate, glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3), is expressed in growing oocytes. Also, treatment of cultured mouse oocytes with soluble KL not only leads to increased Akt kinase activity in the oocytes, which can phosphorylate recombinant GSK-3 in vitro, but also leads to phosphorylation of oocyte GSK-3α and GSK-3β, which can result in the inactivation of GSK-3 function in oocytes. In addition, we have shown that the regulation of GSK-3α and GSK-3β in cultured oocytes by soluble KL is accomplished through P13K, since the P13K-specific inhibitor LY294002 completely abolished the KL-induced phosphorylation of GSK-3α and GSK-3β. Moreover, blockage of the Kit signaling pathway by a Kit function-blocking antibody, ACK2, resulted in reduced phosphorylation of GSK-3. Taken together, our data suggest that the cascade from granulosa cell-derived KL to Kit-P13K-Akt-GSK-3 in oocytes may take part in regulation of oocyte growth and early ovarian follicular development. © 2007 Society for Endocrinology.
