The aim of the present series of experiments was to investigate the effect of the size of follicle from which the oocytes originate on their subsequent in vitro developmental ability. Ovarian follicles were isolated and grouped according to size (2–6 mm, >6 mm). Primary oocytes were carefully liberated and grouped according to morphology into one of five categories: denuded; expanded; with two or three layers of cumulus; with four or five layers; and with many (six or more) layers. Following in… Expand
Effect of Follicle Size on Cumulus-Expansion, In Vitro Fertilization and Development of Porcine Follicular Oocytes
The aim of the present experiment was to investigate the effect of follicular size on oocyte cumulus-expansion, in vitro fertilization and subsequent developmental competence. After maturationExpand
Effect of follicular size on meiotic and developmental competence of porcine oocytes.
TLDR
It is concluded that a high proportion of oocytes harvested from follicles of less than 3 mm in the pig are not fully competent for meiosis and are cytoplasmically deficient for development. Expand
Origin of bovine follicular fluid and its effect during in vitro maturation on the developmental competence of bovine oocytes.
TLDR
F follicular fluid originating from competent follicles increased the developmental competence of abbatoir-derived oocytes, and acted in synergy to increase blastocyst production rate. Expand
Effect of follicle size and quality on the ability of follicular fluid to support cytoplasmic maturation of bovine oocytes
TLDR
The efficacy of FF as a supplement to the maturation medium to improve cytoplasmic maturation appears to vary with follicle quality but not size, while addition of FF from early atretic follicles irrespective of size did not yield a significant improvement. Expand
Effect of follicle size on oocytes recovery rate, quality, and in-vitro developmental competence in Bos indicus cows
TLDR
It can be concluded that oocytes derived from follicle ≥6 mm have better in vitro developmental competence based on embryonic conversion in Bos indicus cows. Expand
EFFECTS OF FOLLICLE SIZE AND OOCYTES DIAMETER ON DEVELOPMENTAL COMPETENCE AND IN VITRO EMBRYO PRODUCTION OF AWASSI SHEEP EWES OOCYTES
TLDR
Follicles of different sizes were dissected from ovaries of Awassi ewes and classified  according to size into four groups, showing significant differences in the IVF rates among the four groups A, B, C and D. Expand
The in vitro developmental competence of bovine oocytes can be related to the morphology of the ovary.
TLDR
It is concluded that ovarian morphology is a simple and noninvasive parameter for an effective selection of oocytes with better developmental competence. Expand
Determination of optimal follicular size for obtaining the most quality oocytes for in vitro fertilization
The aim of this study was to determinate optimal follicular size for collection of high quality oocytes, and the subsequent capacity of the oocyte to mature and be fertilized and to develop in vitro.Expand
Effect of follicular size on in vitro developmental competence of oocytes and viability of embryos after transfer in the dromedary (Camelus dromedarius).
TLDR
The present study shows that dromedary oocytes developmental competence is acquired late during the final phase of follicular development and this developmental ability translates into greater pregnancy rates after transfer of in vitro produced hatched blastocysts. Expand

TLDR

Fertilization and developmental competence of bovine oocytes derived from different categories of antral follicles
TLDR
It is concluded that blastocysts from follicles ranging from >2 to 8 mm in size have a similar developmental potential and oocytes from 1‐ to 2‐mm follicles have a significantly lower competence to undergo in vitro maturation and fertilization and, under the conditions of the authors' experiments, completely lack the capability to cleave beyond the 8‐cell stage.

Effect of fresh or cultured follicular fractions on meiotic resumption in bovine oocytes
TLDR
The effect of each part of the follicle on meiotic resumption in bovine oocytes is summarized and Associations between mural granulosa cells and cumulus cells seem to be essential for prevention of nuclear maturation but the health ofthe follicle and the follicular fluid content are also important.

TLDR
It is concluded that maturation of the ovum can be obtained simply by isolating it from the normal follicular environment. Expand
Superovulatory responses of cattle
TLDR
Individual differences in follicular populations at the time of treatment, or in E 2 -17β levels after stimulation, could be related to differences in responses in ovulation rate. Expand
Effect of FSHp on day 1 of the estrous cycle on follicle number and concentrations of inhibin in follicular fluid in heifers
TLDR
A single injection of FSHp on Day 1 of the estrous cycle did not significantly affect the total number of follicles, and it possibly increased the number of large follicles on Day 3 and decreased the percentage of estrogen-active follicleson Day 3. Expand
Effect of low dose of FSH given at the beginning of the estrous cycle and subsequent superovulatory response in Holstein cows.
TLDR
Low doses of FSH given at the beginning of the cycle increased ovulation rate and embryo recovery in non-lactating cows. Expand

TLDR
Using this model, FSH and basal levels of LH have been shown to be key signals for recruitment, however, in cycling sheep and cattle, the exact recruitment signal is not clear. Expand

Translational capacity of sheep oocytes microinjected with messenger RNA.
TLDR
The results suggest that the translational capacity of sheep oocytes is fully saturated during maturation, and synthesis of most endogenous proteins was uniformly reduced to compensate for the synthesis of TMV-polypeptides. Expand
