Table 2 Maturation rate and cumulus expansion of COCs incubated further for 22-h in medium without AGT after 22-h cultivation in medium with 10 mM AGT

From: Studies of the role of steroid hormone in the regulation of oocyte maturation in cattle

Treatment Number of Oocytes examined Maturation rate (%) Cumulus Expansion +3 (%)
Control1) 120 92.3 ± 1.6 79.4 ± 4.0
AGT-10 mM2) 120 89.4 ± 4.5 78.7 ± 5.7
  1. 1) Oocytes were cultured for 22 h in TCM-199. 2) Oocytes were cultured in TCM-199 medium with 10 mM AGT for 22 h and then COCs were further cultured 22 h in TCM-199 medium without 10 mM AGT. Values are mean ± SEM of three different replicates. AGT: aminoglutethimide.
