Objective: To discuss the effect of Nuclear Factor-κB (NF-κB) in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Materials and Methods: Thirty female SD rats were divided into a control group (n=15) and a PCOS group (n=15). The expression of NF-κB in ovaries of each group was monitored by way of immunohistochemistry and quantitative PCR. Results: The expression of NF-κB p65 in ovaries by immunohistochemical and fluorescence quantitative PCR shows no significant difference between the two groups (p > 0.01). Conclusion: The pathogenesis of this research model has no obvious association with NF-κB.
