Oocyte Growth in Maturational Stages

Bar graph of oocyte diameter versus follicular stage. This graph shows a comparison of follicle morphology and oocyte diameter in four mammalian species: mouse, hamster, pig, and human. Note the larger size of the developing human oocyte compared to the other species.

Asterisk indicates values from previously published data for reference (PMID 15763114), and therefore do not include error bars. Values are the mean ± standard error.
