Ahmad Naik P, Pardasani KR., Finite element model of calcium distribution in oocytes for one dimensional unsteady state case, Onl J Vet Res., 28 (1): 6-18, 2024. Ca2+ is the second messenger responsible for oocyte maturation. The mechanisms involved in calcium dynamics of oocyte maturation are poorly understood. We report In silico model to determine intracellular calcium concentration in circular shaped oocyte. Buffers, influx and diffusion coefficient parameters were included and initial boundary conditions framed. Finite element resolved initial boundary value problems so that effect of buffers, influx and diffusion coefficient on calcium levels in oocyte could be determined.
