Improvement of the developmental capacity of oocytes from prepubertal cattle by intraovarian insulin-like growth factor-I application.

Abstract

The developmental potential of oocytes from prepubertal cattle is decreased, compared with those from their adult counterparts. The aim of the present study was to improve the developmental capacity of oocytes from prepubertal cattle by either systemic application of recombinant bovine somatotropin (rbST) or intraovarian injection of insulin-like growth… (More)
