    Fibroblast growth factor 10 (FGF10) is an important regulator of the mammalian cumulus-oocyte complex that plays a crucial role in oocyte maturation. In this study, we investigated the effects of FGF10 supplementation on the in vitro maturation (IVM) of buffalo oocytes and its related mechanisms. During IVM, the maturation medium was supplemented with a range of concentrations of FGF10 (0, 0.5, 5, and 50 ng/mL) and the resulting effects were corroborated using aceto-orcein staining, TUNEL apoptosis assay, detection of Cdc2/Cdk1 kinase in oocytes, and real-time quantitative PCR. In matured oocytes, the 5 ng/mL-FGF10 treatment resulted in a significantly increased nuclear maturation rate, which increased the activity of maturation-promoting factor (MPF) and enhanced buffalo oocyte maturation. Furthermore, it treatment significantly inhibited the apoptosis of cumulus cells, while simultaneously promoting its proliferation and expansion. This treatment also increased the absorption of glucose in cumulus cells. Thus, our results indicate that adding an appropriate concentration of FGF10 to a maturation medium during IVM can be beneficial to the maturation of buffalo oocytes and improve the potential of embryo development.
