Gene expression profiling of human oocytes at different maturational stages and after in vitro maturation.
OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to catalog genes expressed in human oocytes at germinal vesicle (GV) or metaphase II (MII) stage and to compare gene profiles between oocytes matured in vivo (in vivo-MII) and in vitro (IVM-MII). STUDY DESIGN: University-based research utilizing unfertilized oocytes analyzed for > 29,000 genes with RNA amplification and microarray. RESULTS: GV, in vivo-MII, and IVM-MII oocytes expressed 12,219, 9735, and 8510 genes, respectively. There was extensiv...Expand abstract
