Selection of oocytes for in vitro maturation by brilliant cresyl blue staining: a study using the mouse model

Abstract

Selecting oocytes that are most likely to develop is crucial for in vitro fertilization and animal cloning. Brilliant cresyl blue (BCB) staining has been used for oocyte selection in large animals, but its wider utility needs further evaluation. Mouse oocytes were divided into those stained (BCB+) and those unstained (BCB−) according to their ooplasm BCB… (More)
