The present study was undertaken to investigate the influence of epidermal growth factor (EGF) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) during in vitro maturation on cytoplasmic maturation of porcine oocytes as revealed by the success of fertilization and by the changes in the pattern of protein synthesis in oocytes and cumulus cells. For fertilization studies, oocyte-cumulus cell complexes (OCC) were cultured in media containing human recombinant EGF (1 ng/ml) or FSH (1.5 microg/ml) or both for… CONTINUE READING
