Oogenesis: Ageing Oocyte Chromosomes Rely on Amazing Protein Stability

Meiotic chromosome segregation in mouse oocytes seems to rely on highly stable cohesins and CENP-A produced in the fetus and not replenished during postnatal life. Hence, demise of these proteins may underpin declining oocyte quality in ageing mammals and thus marks a major problem of reproductive health in humans.
