Effects of gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists on meiotic maturation of follicle-enclosed oocytes in rabbits.

Abstract

The effects of GnRH agonists on in vitro maturation of rabbit follicle-enclosed oocytes were studied. Rabbit preovulatory follicles were cultured with or without hCG (10(2) ng/ml), buserelin (10(2)-10(5) ng/ml), or leuprolide (10(2)-10(5) ng/ml) for 14 hours in vitro. GnRH agonists induced the resumption of meiosis in the follicle-enclosed oocytes in a dose… (More)
