Modulatory actions of activin-A and follistatin on the developmental competence of in vitro-matured bovine oocytes.

Abstract

The presence of activin receptors on oocytes and granulosa cells suggests that activin and its binding protein, follistatin, may regulate oocyte maturation. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether activin-A and follistatin can influence the in vitro maturation of bovine oocytes as assessed by their competence to form blastocysts after in… (More)
