List of OCT-4-regulated genes expressed in both MII oocytes and 2-cell embryos. Comparison of gene expression is made between MIINSN vs. MIIctrl or 2-cellNSN vs. 2-cellctrl. Red box, up-regulated; green box, down-regulated; blank box, not differentially expressed. The hypergeometric test proved that the up- (MIINSN oocytes) and down-regulated (2-cellNSN embryos) pattern of expression of the majority genes (*) was not a stochastic event (p = 0.0039).
