, Dai R.
In this review the concept that the origins of embryonic failure occur during
oocyte development is explored. The four factors that determine oocyte
viability, namely a normal growth phase, adequate follicle cell support
during maturation, the completion of intracellular reprogramming before
fertilization and the functioning of oocyte surveillance mechanisms, form the
four sections of this review. The viability of pig oocytes at the end of the
growth phase is compromised...
