To determine if reductions in developmental competence related to heat stress exposure were correlated with perturbations in certain RNA populations, poly(A) RNA, total RNA, RNA size distribution, and the abundance of transcripts (cyclin B1, GDF9, BMP15, poly(A) polymerase, HSP70, 18S & 28S rRNA) were examined in oocytes matured at 38.5 or 41 C.
