The article discusses the cryopreservation of human oocytes and ovarian tissue. It analyzes the effects of cryopreservation on the parts of occytes, including chromosomes, cytoskeleton and cortical granules. It explores the applications of occytes and ovarian cryopreservation. Also examine is the potential of cumulus granulosa cells to protect metaphase II oocyte from sudden osmotic changes and stresses.
