STUDY QUESTION Is the relative telomere length in cumulus cells associated with embryo quality and the subject's age? SUMMARY ANSWER The relative telomere length in cumulus cells at the time of oocyte collection may be a new potential biomarker for selecting highly competent oocytes and good quality embryos. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY Telomeres play central roles in aging and in determining cell fate. In mammalian ovarian follicles, maturing oocytes are nurtured and supported by surrounding… CONTINUE READING
