To investigate the effects of Insulin like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) on bovine oocyte developmental competence under heat stress. In Experiment 1, bovine cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs) were cultured at 38.5 or 41°C for the first 12 h of maturation in the presence of either 100 ng/ml human recombinant (hr)-IGF-1 or acetic acid. In Experiment 2, COCs were cultured in 38.5 or 41°C for the first 12 h of maturation in the presence either of 100 ng/ml hr-IGF-1 or acetic acid. After fertilization… CONTINUE READING
