With 4 figures SUMMARY: We investigated the frequencies of cytoskeletal anomalies in metaphase‐II (M‐II) and incompetent [arrested at an immature metaphase (IM) stage] porcine and bovine oocytes during in vitro maturation (IVM) in relation with ageing by immunostaining and confocal microscopy. In porcine oocytes, meiotic arrest at the IM stage was associated with abnormalities of cortical actin bu ...
