Abstract: Like young wines, immature eggs, known as oocytes, must chill out for years. Now, research reveals that a molecule that helps unveil oocytes at the right moment also staves off age-related infertility. Understanding the mechanisms involved could reveal ways to maintain women's childbearing capacities later in life.
