Mammalian oocyte maturation and cumulus expansion are hormone-induced contemporaneous processes that involve changes in cumulus cell shape and in the interactions between cumulus cells and the oocyte. Laser scanning confocal and conventional fluorescence microscopy have been used to study the relationship between reorganization of the cumulus cell cytoskeleton and meiotic progression in bovine cumulus oocyte complexes (COCs) matured in vitro. Inclusion of hormone supplements (FSH, LH, E2) in… CONTINUE READING
