I read a study on-line that women of Advanced Maternal Age may be lacking a protein in their oocyte's zona pellucida, and that may be why their blastocytes do not implant causing IVF to be unsuccessful. If the older woman's zona pellucida is replaced with only the zona pellucida of a younger donor oocyte, and IVF is then carried out, the embryo is normal according to PGD and IVF leads to successful pregnancy, what are the genetic ramifications to the child?
