Isolation, characterization and differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells from amniotic fluid, umbilical cord blood and Wharton's jelly in the horse.
TLDR
It is suggested that equine MSCs from AF, UCB and WJ appeared to be a readily obtainable and highly proliferative cell lines from a uninvasive source that may represent a good model system for stem cell biology and cellular therapy applications in horses, but to assess their use as an allogenic cell source, further studies are needed.

A genetic linkage map of durum wheat
TLDR
This map provides a useful tool for analysing and breeding economically important quantitative traits and for marker-assisted selection, as well as for studies of genome organisation in small grain cereal species. Expand
Molecular linkage map for an intraspecific recombinant inbred population of durum wheat (Triticum turgidum L. var. durum)
TLDR
This intraspecific map provides a useful tool for marker-assisted selection and map-based breeding for resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses and for improvement of grain quality. Expand
Isolation and in Vitro Characterization of Bovine Amniotic Fluid Derived Stem Cells at Different Trimesters of Pregnancy
TLDR
The aim of this work was to isolate and characterize cells isolated from bovine AF as alternative sources of primitive multipotent stem cells in a species that could be a large-animal model for biomedical and biotechnology researches. Expand
Quality and in vitro fertilizing ability of cryopreserved cat spermatozoa obtained by urethral catheterization after medetomidine administration.
TLDR
It is indicated that good quality freezable semen can be collected from cats by urethral catheterization after medetomidine administration, and appears very useful in practice and, compared with the electroejaculation protocol, permits to obtain semen samples characterized by a higher concentration of spermatozoa, lower total volume and lower pH.

Effect of EGF on in vitro maturation of domestic cat oocytes.
TLDR
Although EGF did not significantly enhance nuclear maturation rate, it had a dose-related positive effect on cytoplasmic maturation, since the oocyte's ability to cleave and reach the blastocyst stage was improved at 25 ng/ mL, with intermediate improvement at 10 ng/mL, but 50 ng/L had no significant benefit. Expand
Cat blastocysts produced in vitro from oocytes vitrified using the cryoloop technique and cryopreserved electroejaculated semen.
TLDR
Cat oocytes can be vitrified in cryoloop with a fairly good survival rate, cleavage rate and embryo development until pre-implantation stage, in conclusion. Expand
Pregnancies following artificial insemination with spermatozoa from problem stallion ejaculates processed by single layer centrifugation with Androcoll-E.
TLDR
The results suggest that SLC may be useful when preparing AI doses from some 'problem' ejaculates, and that the spermatozoa were functional after SLC. Expand
Molecular characterization of Cryptosporidium spp. from foals in Italy.
TLDR
Sequences of the gp60 gene of Cryptosporidium horse genotype allowed identification of the subtype family VIaA15G4, defining a novel microsatellite pattern within horse subtype VIa. Expand
Quality and fertilizing ability of electroejaculated cat spermatozoa frozen with or without Equex STM Paste.
TLDR
Investigating if addition of Equex STM Paste to a freezing extender for electroejaculated cat (Felis catus) semen would improve postthaw sperm quality and if sperm fertilizing ability after cryopreservation with or without EquexSTM Paste was preserved finds that it avoids the loss of motile spermatozoa and maintains fertilization ability of frozen-thawed spermatozosa.
