It causes LH release and may be helpful in causing ovulation in cases of in-vitro fertilization cycles.2 The reproductive endocrinologists have determined the role of Kisspeptin in oocyte maturation and improvement in endometrial thickness in infertile females reported for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI).3 corresponds to all standard parameters except that morphology of sperms was less than the reference range.
Early occurs shortly after oocyte aspiration and is the result of the influence of exogenous hCG that is administered for the purpose of final oocyte maturation. The predisposing factors for its development are: younger age, PCOS, tubal and male sterility.
Mammalian oocyte maturation involves nuclear and cytoplasmic maturation, which are essential for successful fertilization and embryonic development [15].
santolla, the particular organization of the oocytes, according to the morphological characteristics to the interior of the maturation lobes, suggests a synchronous oocyte maturation, which progresses as the oocytes move away from the center of the ovary.
In zebrafish, recent studies have shown that PGE2 is involved in regulation of oocyte maturation,ovulation (Lister and Van der Kraak, 2008, 2009) and gonad differentiation (Pradhan and Olsson, 2014, Biol Reprod).
Somatic cells of follicles, especially CC (CCs), perform a crucial role for oocyte maturation during in vivo conditions (Gilchrist et al., 2007).
This short-run LH increase will ensure more proper final oocyte maturation but not cause luteinization (7) because the process of luteinization requires time.
(5,7,8,11,18,26-28) The hypothesis of delayed start protocol is that estrogen pretreatment in the preceding luteal phase and an immediate and short pituitary shutdown with GnRH antagonist in the early follicular phase increases the rate of oocyte maturation by providing more time for FSH receptors to develop, and thus provide better response to the pituitary hormones resulting in better development of oocytes.
Glucose-6-phosphate activity is increased by estrogen and plays a role in oocyte maturation (5).
