MAP kinase activation occurs during meiotic maturation of oocytes from all animals, but the requirement for MAP kinase activation in reinitiation of meiosis appears to vary between different classes. In particular, it has become accepted that MAP kinase activation is necessary for progesterone-stimulated meiotic maturation of Xenopus oocytes, while this is clearly not the case in other systems. In this paper, we demonstrate that MAP kinase activation in Xenopus oocytes is an early response to… CONTINUE READING
