The ability to mature and fertilize oocytes of endangered species may allow us to sustain genetic and global biodiversity. The first objective of this study was to compare the effect of two different culture media and two different incubation times on in vitro maturation (IVM) of domestic cat oocytes. The second objective was to determine the developmental competence of in vitro matured cat oocytes after intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) with cat spermatozoa. Oocytes recovered from… CONTINUE READING
