Collection and in vitro maturation (IVM) of immature germinal vesicle (GV) oocytes
Photomicrograph of the female reproductive system of Megamelus scutellaris showing ovaries (ov), common oviduct (c), anterior and posterior portions of the lateral oviduct (loa and lop, respectively), and overall structure of a follicle including the germinal vesicle (gv) and oocyte with yolk (oy).
13] could show that in patients with PCOS the treatment with myoinositol and folic acid, but not folic acid alone, reduces germinal vesicles and degenerated oocytes at ovum pick-up without compromising total number of retrieved oocytes.
Percentage of nucleus which reached metaphase II oocytes in TCM199 medium +FCS10% + 10% GFF was caused germinal vesicle fusion can accelerate and enable the process of reduction division nucleus.
Isolation of GV Oocytes: Germinal vesicle oocytes were obtained from 8-10 week old female mice (n=40) who were primed with an intraperitoneal injection of 7.

The intact germinal vesicle in mature oocytes indicates that they are not physiologically mature.
Both form adjacent to and on opposite sides of the germinal vesicle, the anterior body earliest.
The oocytes were classified into 3 groups of germinal vesicle, metaphase I (MI), and metaphase II (MII) according to the standard criteria.
We investigated several such factors including germinal vesicle (GV) chromatin configuration, CG migration, mitochondrial distribution, AcH3K9 levels, and apoptotic nuclear features of BCB+, BCB-, and control oocytes.
The females which are capable of spawning are those which appear during the reproductive cycle with vitelogenic oocytes or with histological indicators of imminent spawning (late migration of germinal vesicle, germinal vesicle breakdown and hydration) or recent spawning (POFs of recent collapse).
Methods: The oocytes at Germinal Vesicle (GV) and Metaphase ll (MI1) stages were recovered from 6-8 week.
