MII-arrested rat oocytes spontaneously resume meiotic maturation soon after recovery from oviducts. Time elapsed post oocyte retrieval, environmental factors, certain genetic background have been implied to promote spontaneous release from MII arrest in rat oocytes. The precise mechanism behind this process is unknown. This study was undertaken to explore signaling pathways, which may be involved in spontaneous activation in rat oocytes. Using triple immuno-staining and epifluorescence… CONTINUE READING
