Abstract

Abnormal oocyte spindle is frequently associated with the infertility of aged women. Directly manipulating the metaphase I (MI) spindle may be a feasible method to overcome this kind of problem. Here, we report that the MI meiotic spindle can be removed from MI mouse oocytes and will autonomously divide into two daughter cells with the same size, morphology and an equal number of chromosomes after culture for 5 h in maturation medium. The division rate of the MI spindle reached 56% after 10-15 h of culture. After transferring the MI meiotic spindle into synchronous ooplasm by electrofusion, about 61% of the reconstructed oocytes continued to complete the first meiosis and extruded a normal first polar body. The matured reconstructed oocytes can also be fertilised. Approximately 50% of the 2-cell embryos developed to the morula stage after in vitro culture.
