In several species, the developmental competence of the oocyte is acquired progressively during late follicular growth, after the acquisition of the competence to resume and complete meiosis. In the pig, full meiotic competence of the oocyte is reached in ovarian follicles with a diameter of 3 mm or more. However, there is no information about developmental competence acquisition. We analyzed the ability of oocytes from three foll icular size classes to resume and complete meiosis, to be… CONTINUE READING
