GLOBOSA (GLO) is a homeotic gene whose mutants show sepaloid petals and carpelloid stamens. The similarity of Glo mutants to those of the DEFICIENS (DEFA) gene suggests that the two genes have comparable functions in floral morphogenesis. The GLO cDNA has been cloned by virtue of its homology to the MADS-box, a conserved DNA-binding domain also contained in(More)
We have determined the structure of the floral homeotic deficiens (defA) gene whose mutants display sepaloid petals and carpelloid stamens, and have analysed its spatial and temporal expression pattern. In addition, several mutant alleles (morphoalleles) were studied. The results of these analyses define three functional domains of the DEF A protein and(More)
Embryonic and extra-embryonic lineages are separated at the blastocyst stage in the mouse at the onset of implantation but well ahead of implantation in most mammals. To provide information on the development of the trophoblast lineage in late-implanting bovine embryos, we combined the use of molecular markers defining embryonic and extra-embryonic lineages(More)
At implantation the endometrium undergoes modifications necessary for its physical interactions with the trophoblast as well as the development of the conceptus. We aim to identify endometrial factors and pathways essential for a successful implantation in the caruncular (C) and the intercaruncular (IC) areas in cattle. Using a 13,257-element bovine(More)
The main objective of this project is to identify mRNA associated with oocyte maturation and embryonic developmental competency. The knowledge of genes and their accumulated mRNA is essential to better understand the mechanisms involved in the oocyte maturation and the survival of the in vitro produced embryo. We used bovine slaughterhouse-recovered ovaries(More)

Implantation is crucial for placental development that will subsequently impact fetal growth and pregnancy success with consequences on postnatal health. We postulated that the pattern of genes expressed by the endometrium when the embryo becomes attached to the mother uterus could account for the final outcome of a pregnancy. As a model, we used the bovine(More)
The high rates of embryonic mortalities which follow in vitro production of ruminant embryos have emphasized the need for increased knowledge of early development. It is likely that early failures in embryonic development and placenta formation involve abnormal differentiation of mesoderm. The aim of this study was to investigate the pattern of expression(More)
Syncytins are envelope genes of retroviral origin that have been co-opted for a role in placentation and likely contribute to the remarkable diversity of placental structures. Independent capture events have been identified in primates, rodents, lagomorphs, and carnivores, where they are involved in the formation of a syncytium layer at the fetomaternal(More)
Transcription profiling of placentomes derived from somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT, n = 20), in vitro fertilization (IVF, n = 9), and artificial insemination (AI, n = 9) at or near term development was performed to better understand why SCNT and IVF often result in placental defects, hydrops, and large offspring syndrome (LOS). Multivariate analysis of(More)
Brachyury is a T-box-containing transcription factor involved in mesoderm formation during vertebrate gastrulation. To analyse whether the regulation of gastrulation varies as much as the timing of gastrulation does with respect to implantation, we isolated a bovine brachyury cDNA fragment. The amino acid sequence shows high similarity to mouse and human(More)
