Influence of caffeine pretreatment on biphasic in vitro maturation of dog oocytes.
Phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors have been utilized for in vitro maturation (IVM) of oocytes to manipulate the meiotic resumption and progression. Premature chromatin condensation and DNAExpand

Role of hyaluronic acid in maturation and further early embryo development of bovine oocytes.
Hyaluronic acid (HA), an important component of the extracellular matrix, plays a crucial role for cumulus cell expansion. Genes and proteins involved in HA synthesis and its receptor CD44 areExpand

Effects of oxygen concentration on in vitro maturation of canine oocytes in a chemically defined serum-free medium.
Canine oocytes require an extended period of culture (72  h) in vitro for nuclear maturation to the metaphase II stage, which also results in high degeneration. Canine cumulus oocyte complexes wereExpand

Influence of hyaluronan on endometrial receptivity and embryo attachment in sheep.
An increasing number of reports suggests a role of hyaluronan (HA) in female reproduction and interest in its application in assisted reproduction is rising. However, there are contrasting data aboutExpand

Regulation and roles of the hyaluronan system in mammalian reproduction.
Hyaluronan (HA) is a non-sulphated glycosaminoglycan polymer naturally occurring in many tissues and fluids of mammals, including the reproductive system. Its biosynthesis by HA synthase (HAS1-3) andExpand

Studies on cryoprotectant toxicity to zebrafish (Danio rerio) ovarian tissue fragments.
Cryopreservation of ovarian tissue is a viable alternative to cryopreservation of oocytes and embryos in many species but it has not been studied in fish. Selection of cryoprotectant is an importantExpand
