The possible role of meiotic pairing anomalies in the atresia of human fetal oocytes

Abstract

Following a previous study of human fetal oocytes analysed by light and electron microscope microspreading (Speed 1985), a further and more extensive analysis has now been carried out at electron microscope (EM) level. Some new anomalies not previously observed are described. More than one-third of all pachytene oocytes show degeneration (Z-cells) or… (More)
