In zebrafish oocytes, it has been reported that a 60 or 75% Leibovitz L-15 medium or simple balanced saline solution containing 17alpha, 20beta-dihydroxy-4-pregnen-3-one (DHP) is effective for nuclear maturation. However, most of the oocytes that matured under these conditions were not fertilized and did not hatch. Thus, these in vitro maturation methods could not support the cytoplasmic maturation of zebrafish oocytes. Therefore, we tried to develop a reliable in vitro maturation method for… CONTINUE READING
