Chromatin behaviour under influence of puromycin and 6-DMAP at different stages of mouse oocyte maturation

Preovulatory mouse oocytes were cultured in vitro up to each subsequent stages of maturation: germinal vesicle (GV), germinal vesicle breakdown (GVBD), groups of not yet individualized bivalents, circular bivalents, late prometaphase I, metaphase I, anaphase I and telophase I. The stages were identified in living oocytes by fluorescence microscopy using… CONTINUE READING
