Evidence is presented that strongly supports the hypothesis that the junctional association between oocytes and granulosa cells must be maintained to promote oocyte growth and development in vitro and that the coculture of oocytes with granulosa cells is not a sufficient condition for oocyte development. Furthermore, it is shown that incorporation of uridine and leucine by oocytes into TCA-insoluble material is significantly greater in granulosa cell-enclosed oocytes than in cocultured oocytes.
