Table 1 In vitro maturation of porcine oocytes

From: DNA damage in cumulus cells generated after the vitrification of in vitro matured porcine oocytes and its impact on fertilization and embryo development

Maturation (mean ± SD)
Control GV MI MII
44/369 (12 ± 1.51) 57/369 (15 ± 8.81) 268/369 (73 ± 8.47)
  1. Porcine oocytes were matured in vitro for 44 h and Hoechst stain was performed to evaluate oocyte maturation stages in control (n = 369 evaluated oocytes). Oocytes in GV and MI, were considered immature and oocytes in MII as matured. Data are presented as mean ± standard deviation (SD)
  2. GV = germinal vesicle; MI = metaphase I; MII = metaphase II
