The present study was designed to address the physiological role played by cAMP on gap junction (GJ) mediated communications between oocyte and cumulus cells during in vitro maturation. Cyclic AMP was stimulated by different collection and maturation media known to induce different rates of nuclear maturation and developmental competence as well as different levels of cumulus expansion. Cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs) were matured for 0, 3, 7, 12, 18, and 24 h in the absence of stimulation or… CONTINUE READING
