Abstract

Fully grown mammalian oocytes maintain a prophase I germinal-vesicle stage arrest in the ovary for extended periods before a luteinizing hormone surge induces entry into the first meiotic division. Cdh1 is an activator of the anaphase-promoting complex (APC) and APCcdh1 is normally restricted to late M to early G1 phases of the cell cycle. Here, we find that APCcdh1 is active in mouse oocytes and is necessary to maintain prophase arrest.
