Abstract

Gene expression of heat stressed oocytes matured in vitro was evaluated for potential markers which could be used to characterize the effects of heat stress on developing oocytes in the pig. Three heat stress scenarios were administered during in vitro oocyte maturation. Heat stressed oocytes had reduced maturation rates, decreased developmental competency, and altered expression of heat stress and developmental competency markers.
