As an important biological messenger, nitric oxide (NO) exhibits a wide range of effects during physiological and pathophysiological processes, including mammalian oocyte meiotic maturation. The present study investigated whether NO derived from two nitric oxide synthase (NOS) isoforms, inducible NOS (iNOS) or endothelial NOS (eNOS), is involved in the meiotic maturation of porcine oocytes. Meanwhile, the cumulus cells' function in meiotic maturation and their interaction with oocyte… CONTINUE READING
