Nitric oxide delays oocyte aging.

Abstract

Nitric oxide (NO) is a ubiquitous signaling molecule that plays a crucial role in oocyte maturation and embryo development. However, its role in oocyte aging is unclear. To examine how NO affects oocyte aging, we retrieved young and relatively old mouse oocytes and exposed them to increasing concentrations of NO donor S-nitroso acetyl penicillamine (SNAP… (More)
