Abstract

Dynamic changes in configuration of germinal vesicle (GV) chromatin and their effects on oocyte transcriptional activity and developmental competence were studied in rabbit oocytes. The results indicated that global condensation of GV chromatin, rather than the formation of a perinucleolar ring, would better reflect the global transcriptional repression and developmental competence of oocytes. Gonadotropins, by promoting large-scale chromatin remodeling, regulate oocyte transcriptional activity and developmental competence. © 2009 American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
