Effect of maternal age on the developmental competence and progression of nuclear maturation in bovine oocytes.

Abstract

Progression of meiotic division in oocytes and early embryonic development are affected by oocytes quality. In most mammals, oocyte quality declines with increase in maternal age. The main aim of the present study is to investigate the effect of maternal age on developmental competence, progression of meiotic division, and associated kinetics of maturation… (More)
