Experiments were conducted to find an optimal incubation period in a sucrose solution during dilution of cryoprotectants for obtaining a higher level of survival and development of cat oocytes cryopreserved by vitrification method. In the first experiment, in vitro-matured fresh oocytes were exposed to 0.5M sucrose solution for 1 or 5 min before in vitro(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and toxicity of single and double application of the brilliant cresyl blue (BCB) test on the selection of porcine oocytes as an indirect measure of oocyte growth for in vitro fertilization (IVF) and nuclear transfer. In the first experiment, oocytes were exposed to BCB before and after maturation(More)
The present study was conducted to investigate the effects of storage time and temperature of porcine ovaries on the quality and nuclear maturation in vitro of oocytes obtained from stored ovaries and their subsequent development after in vitro fertilization. The ovaries were stored in physiological saline for 0, 3, 6, 9 and 12 h at various temperatures (4,(More)
It has been suggested that the maturational stage of oocytes at time of insemination influences the sex ratio of resulting embryos. However, there are very few reports concerning the relationship between the maturation culture period of oocytes and the sex ratio of resulting embryos. The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of in vitro(More)
We conducted two experiments to investigate the effects of storage temperature and period for cat ovaries on the meiotic and developmental competence of oocytes collected from the ovaries. In Experiment 1, ovaries were stored in physiological saline for 24 h at 4 C, 23-25 C, or 38 C (cold, room, and incubator temperature groups, respectively), and then(More)
The objectives of this study were to determine the effects of cycloheximide (CHX) and beta-mercaptoethanol (beta-ME) during storage of in vitro-produced (IVP) bovine blastocysts for 72 h at 4 degrees C on their survival, hatching capacity and DNA damage. In Experiment 1, when blastocysts were stored in a medium supplemented with 25, 50 or 100 microg/mL of(More)
The present study was conducted to examine the relationship between the oxygen consumption rate and sex ratio of bovine in vitro fertilized embryos on each day of blastocyst formation. The quality of blastocysts collected on day 7, 8, and 9 after in vitro fertilization (IVF) were categorized as ranks A and B (excellent and good, respectively) based on(More)
The present study was conducted to investigate the effects of the length of exposure to an elevated temperature (41 degrees C) on the meiotic competence and DNA damage of porcine oocytes. Oocytes were recovered from ovaries, loaded into straws, and then exposed at 41.0 or 38.5 degrees C (sham control) for 0, 0.5, 1.0, or 1.5h, followed by culture for 44 h.(More)
The present study was conducted to examine the meiotic competence of canine oocytes embedded in collagen gel, and to investigate the effects of timed exposure of the oocytes embedded in collagen gel to gonadotrophins during maturation culture, on their nuclear maturation. Cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs) were collected from bitches at the anoestrous and(More)
The present study was conducted to investigate the effects of attachment of cumulus cells to porcine oocytes during the process of maturation and fertilization on the nuclear maturation, fertilization and subsequent development after in vitro fertilization (IVF). In the first experiment, the cumulus cells were removed from cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs) at(More)
