AIM: To study the mechanism of the effect of gonadotropin-induced oocyte maturation. METHODS: Mouse oocytes were cultured in HX-medium, and the effects of amphotericin B and ketoconazole on resumption of meiosis of mouse oocyte were examined. RESULTS: 1. FSH(10-200 IU/L) induced a dose-dependent manner of oocytes maturation in CEO. A maximum increase in GVBD was observed with 25-50 IU/L FSH. 2. Amphotericin tericim B (0.025-2.5 micrograms/L) caused significant increases in GVBD in CEO, which mimicked the function of FSH. 3. Ketoconazole (10(-7)-10(-3) mol/L) inhibited the effect of FSH on resumption of meiosis, but no effect on oocyte spontaneous maturation. CONCLUSION: Amphotericin B and ketoconazole are able to affect mouse oocyte maturation, and indicates that they have a regulation on FSH-induced synthesis of meiosis-activating sterol.
