Brain natriuretic peptide and C-type natriuretic peptide maintain porcine oocyte meiotic arrest.

Abstract

Recent studies have shown that C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) serves as a key control system during mouse oocyte maturation. We used pig models (in vitro and in vivo) to explore the role played by the natriuretic peptide family in porcine oocyte maturation. We reported the expression and location of natriuretic peptide system in different stages of… (More)
