Apoptosis has been reported in oocyte and preimplantation embryo. The developmental potential of embryo could be related to its rate of apoptosis. This apoptotic fate could be modulated by suboptimal culture conditions: however, a critical role is played by gamete quality and in particular, oocyte apoptosis. Thus, the investigation of apoptosis-related genes and mechanisms in oocyte is crucial. New technologies, such as microarrays, may contribute to the elucidation of molecular pathways… CONTINUE READING
