Consequences of heat stress exposure during the first 12 h of meiotic maturation differed depending on how and when bovine oocytes were activated. If heat-stressed oocytes underwent in vitro fertilization at ~24 h, blastocyst development was less than for respective controls and similar to that obtained for nonheat-stressed oocytes undergoing in vitro fertilization at 30 h (i.e., slightly aged). In contrast, if heat-stressed oocytes underwent chemical activation with ionomycin/6-dimethylaminopurine at 24 h, blastocyst development was not only higher than respective controls, but also equivalent to development obtained after activation of nonheat-stressed oocytes at 30 h. Developmental differences in chemically-activated versus in vitro fertilization-derived embryos were not related to fertilization failure or gross alterations in cytoskeletal components. Rather, ionomycin-induced calcium release and mitogen-activated protein kinase activity were less in heat-stressed oocytes. While underlying mechanisms are multifactorial, ability to obtain equivalent or higher development after parthenogenetic activation demonstrates that oocytes experiencing heat stress during the first 12 h of meiotic maturation have the necessary components to develop to the blastocyst stage, but fail to do so after fertilization.
