When immature bovine oocytes are released from their follicles and are cultured in standard maturation medium, they resume the first meiotic division. The alteration of basic maturation conditions can affect oocyte competence significantly, as reflected by the morula and blastocyst yield after in vitro fertilization. The conditions used from the beginning of maturation up to the blastocyst stage have been shown to influence not only the developmental competence but also, potentially, the normal… CONTINUE READING
