Figure 1: Two cell theory of estrogen production: Luteinizing hormone stimulates the production of androstenedione from cholesterol in the theca cells. This androgen is then transported to the granulosa cells, where it is converted to estrone. Follicle stimulating hormone then promotes the conversion of estrone to 17β-estradiol in the ovaries
