Pig oocytes were isolated from early antral follicles of different sizes and their abilities to resume and complete meiotic maturation in vitro were compared. After 24 h of culture, more than 80% of the oocytes from follicles 0.3-0.7 mm in diameter remained at the germinal vesicle stage, while 66, 94.3 and 100% oocytes from follicles 0.8-1.6, 1.7-2.2 and 3-5 mm in diameter, respectively, completed germinal vesicle breakdown. After 48 h of culture, 35% of the oocytes in the smallest follicle… CONTINUE READING
