Expression profiles of specific orthologous genes in Xenopus, mouse, and cow. The microarray expression profiles of specific gene in the somatic cells surrounding the oocyte during competence acquisition are shown. The mean expression is shown for the following: developmentally incompetent or poorly competent prophase I oocytes (NC1), developmentally competent prophase I oocytes (C1), and developmentally competent metaphase II oocytes (C2).
