Relative gene expression profiles of bovine oocytes, before (GV) and after (MII) in vivo maturation. In all cases the expression at time immature (GV) stage was taken as calibrator against which the relative levels of other time points were calculated. ** indicates significance (p < 0.01) and *** indicates significance (p < 0.0001). Due to the insignificant levels of LUM in immature oocytes an arbitrary 40 Cq values were assigned to calculate the relative fold change.
