To compare 2 hormonal protocols for submission of lactating dairy cows for timed artificial insemination (TAI), nonpregnant lactating Holstein cows (n = 269) >60 d in milk were randomly assigned to each of 2 treatments to receive TAI (TAI = d 0). Cows assigned to the first treatment (Ovsynch, n = 134) received 50 microg of GnRH (d -10), 25 mg of PGF2alpha(More)
Administration of FSH increases the number of developing follicles, and affects oocyte health and cleavage rate. To determine the optimal level of FSH treatment, studies were conducted during the normal breeding season and seasonal anestrus. In Experiment 1, ewes were implanted with SyncroMate-B (SMB; norgestomet) for 14 days during the breeding season.(More)
To determine the relationships among vasculature, mitotic activity, and expression of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) of antral follicles in Bos indicus, bovine ovaries were obtained on day 6 of the estrous cycle from 10 crossbred (Brahman to Thai native cows) after a synchronized estrus with prostaglandin F2α analogue. Ovaries were fixed,(More)
Vol. 35, No. 6 (2003) BioTechniques 1141 the ABI PRISM® 7000 and the TaqMan Universal PCR Master Mix protocols (Applied Biosystems). After discovering that the RNA from the thecal cells had vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) amplification and that RNA from granulosa cells had no VEGF amplification, the 18S rRNA amplification (TaqMan Pre-Developed(More)
This study was conducted to evaluate the expression of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) in ovarian follicles and corpora lutea (CL) throughout the estrous cycle in sheep. Three experiments were conducted to (1) immunolocalize eNOS protein, (2) determine expression of mRNA for eNOS and its receptor guanylate cyclase 1 soluble beta3 (GUCY1B3), and (3)(More)
The objective of the current study was to determine the effects of hormonal treatments on ovarian follicular development and oocyte quality in anestrous ewes. Multiparous crossbred (RambouilletxTarghee) ewes were given melatonin implants (MEL) and/or controlled internal drug release (CIDR) devices in conjunction with follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)(More)
To determine the relationships among vascularity, expression of angiogenic factors, and selected intrafollicular factors in dominant and nondominant follicles of the first follicular wave, ovaries were obtained on d 3 of the estrous cycle from mature cross-bred beef heifers (n = 8) after a synchronized estrus. Follicular fluid (FF) was collected from all(More)
The objectives of this study were to: (1) evaluate the pregnancy rates after transfer of embryos produced in the presence or absence of epidermal growth factor (EGF) during in vitro maturation, and (2) compare several variables of the gravid uterus on day 140 after fertilization in single, twin and triplet pregnancies in ewes (n = 12) bred naturally and in(More)
A study was conducted during hot season to determine the effect of synchronization of ovulation with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) on fertility of lactating dairy cows with ovarian cysts. Non cyclic Holstein dairy cows (n = 80) were stratified by parity and diagnosed as having an ovarian cyst. The cows were further identified as follicular or luteal(More)
Administration of exogenous melatonin (MEL) and progesterone (P4) in conjunction with follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) affects the number of developing follicles and oocyte quality in the anestrus ewe. Crossbred Rambioullet x Targhee Western range ewes (n=25) were randomly assigned to four treatment groups in a 2 x 2 factorial design [+/-MEL and +/CIDR(More)
