Age-associated deterioration in follicular fluid induces a decline in bovine oocyte quality.


Maternal age affects the quality of oocytes. The present study examined whether follicular fluid (FF) is a casual factor for age-associated decline in oocyte quality. First, we measured the concentration of advanced glycation end-products (AGE) in FF derived from young (21-45 months; Young-FF) and aged (≥120 months; Aged-FF) cows and found significantly… (More)
