The impact of nutrition of the cumulus oocyte complex and embryo on subsequent development in ruminants.


Cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs) and early embryos rely on a histotrophic nutrition source for energy production and the synthesis of macromolecules. There is accumulating evidence suggesting that the balance of supply and demand for energy and other anabolic substrates during oocyte maturation and very early stages of development programmes subsequent… (More)
