The Effects of In Vitro Maturation Technique on The Expression of
Genes Involved in Embryonic Genome Activation
of Human Embryos
Materials and Methods
In this experimental study, germinal vesicle (GV) oocytes were cultured
Although displaying the normal morphology, the IVM process appeared to have a negative influence on developmental gene expression levels of human preimplanted embryos. Based on our results, the embryo normal morphology cannot be considered as an ideal scale for the successful growth of embryo at implantation and downstream processes.
