We designed the present study to examine the possible relationship between oocyte, antral follicle size and the nuclear heterogeneity of immature pig oocytes, in order to study the heterogeneity of oocyte populations in ovaries obtained from slaughterhouses. Previously, we carried out an initial experiment to determine, by histological analysis, the effectiveness of the macroscopic criteria (MC) used to screen atretic and nonatretic antral follicles. We recovered 239 follicles by mechanical… CONTINUE READING
