Table 2 Mean number of pre-antral and antral follicles that positively stained for AMH with different sizes (X < 0.1, 0.1 ≤ X < 0.2, 0.2 ≤ X < 0.3, and X ≥ 0.3) and intensity (weak, moderate, strong, very strong) in F1 ovarian mice in PND56

From: Evaluation of expression and serum concentration of anti-Mullerian hormone as a follicle growth marker following consumption of fennel and flaxseed extract in first-generation mice pups
