Successful Piglet Production after Transfer of Blastocysts Produced by a Modified In Vitro System
TLDR
The results suggest that an excellent piglet production system can be established by using this modified IVP system, which produces high-quality porcine blastocysts and has advantages for the generation of cloned and transgenic pigs. Expand
Maturation/M-Phase Promoting Factor: A Regulator of Aging in Porcine Oocytes1
TLDR
The results indicate that not only the increased ability for parthenogenetic activation but also the increased fragmentation rate observed in porcine aged oocytes may be attributable in part to the gradual decrease in MPF activity during prolonged culture. Expand
Divergent patterns of neural development in larval echinoids and asteroids
TLDR
The development and organization of the larval nervous systems of Strongylocentrotus purpuratus and Asterina pectinifera are described using a novel antibody, 1E11, that appears to be neuron specific. Expand
Developmental competence of in vitro-fertilized porcine oocytes after in vitro maturation and solid surface vitrification: effect of cryopreservation on oocyte antioxidative system and cell cycle
TLDR
A significant increase in parthenogenetic activation along with significantly dropped GSH level in vitrified oocytes may explain the decreased ability of the SSV group to form male pronuclei, which might have contributed to the poor developmental competence of vitrified Oocytes. Expand
Essential Role of Fkbp6 in Male Fertility and Homologous Chromosome Pairing in Meiosis
TLDR
Fkbp6 is a component of the synaptonemal complex essential for sex-specific fertility and for the fidelity of homologous chromosome pairing in meiosis and is identified as the causative mutation in spontaneously male sterile as/as mutant rats. Expand
Development and Neural Organization of the Tornaria Larva of the Hawaiian Hemichordate, Ptychodera flava
TLDR
Scanning and transmission electron microscopic studies of the early development of the Hawaiian acorn worm, Ptychodera flava, provide an immunohistochemical identification of the larval nervous system and finds the tornaria nervous system with ciliary bands and an apical organ is rather similar to the echinoderm bipinnaria larvae. Expand
Successful piglet production by IVF of oocytes matured in vitro using NCSU-37 supplemented with fetal bovine serum.
TLDR
Porcine in vitro maturation in NCSU-37 supplemented with FBS reduced the maturational ability of oocytes, but once oocytes have matured, they have the same ability to develop to term after in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer as those matured with PFF. Expand
Cryopreservation and ensuing in vitro fertilization ability of boar spermatozoa from epididymides stored at 4°C
TLDR
Cryopreservation of spermatozoa from boar epididymides stored at 4°C for 1 to 2 d can be used for conserving male germ cells when epididcyal spermutozoa can not be collected immediately and cryopreserved. Expand
Developmental competence, after transfer to recipients, of porcine oocytes matured, fertilized, and cultured in vitro.
TLDR
The results indicate that the viability of in vitro-produced porcine embryos is decreased by IVC after IVF; however, these embryos have competence to develop to term. Expand
Maturation and Fertilization of Porcine Oocytes from Primordial Follicles by a Combination of Xenografting and In Vitro Culture1
TLDR
The results clearly demonstrate that fertilization of oocytes from porcine primordial follicles is achievable by a combination of xenografting and in vitro culture. Expand
