Porcine induced pluripotent stem cells produce chimeric offspring.
Ethical and moral issues rule out the use of human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) in chimera studies that would determine the full extent of their reprogrammed state, instead relying on lessExpand

In vitro production of sexed embryos for gender preselection: high-speed sorting of X-chromosome-bearing sperm to produce pigs after embryo transfer.
The objectives for the present experiments were to apply sperm sexing technology to an in vitro production system with porcine oocytes obtained from slaughterhouse material. On six experimental days,Expand

Development of a culture medium (BECM-3) for porcine embryos: effects of bovine serum albumin and fetal bovine serum on embryo development.
Media are available that can deliver modest porcine embryonic development from a single-cell zygote to the blastocyst stage. However, few embryos develop to hatched blastocysts by Day 7 in vitro,Expand

Staining procedure to detect viability and the true acrosome reaction in spermatozoa of various species.
A simple dual stain procedure (DS) for simultaneously determining sperm viability and acrosomal status is described. The DS includes the use of vital stain trypan blue to detect live and deadExpand

Perspectives for artificial insemination and genomics to improve global swine populations.
Civilizations throughout the world continue to depend on pig meat as an important food source. Approximately 40% of the red meat consumed annually worldwide (94 million metric tons) is pig meat. PigExpand

Patterns of intracellular Ca2+ concentrations in fertilized bovine eggs.
Sperm-induced calcium (Ca2+) changes were examined in zona pellucida-intact, mature bovine eggs injected with the fluorescent Ca2+ indicator fura-2 dextran (fura-2 D). Fifty four percent (37/68) ofExpand

Birth of Piglets After Transfer of Embryos Cryopreserved by Cytoskeletal Stabilization and Vitrification
Abstract Pig embryos suffer severe sensitivity to hypothermic conditions, which limits their ability to withstand conventional cryopreservation. Research has focused on high lipid content of pigExpand

Comparison on in vitro fertilized bovine embryos cultured in KSOM or SOF and cryopreserved by slow freezing or vitrification.
The objectives of this study were to identify an improved in vitro cell-free embryo culture system and to compare post-warming development of in vitro produced (IVP) bovine embryos followingExpand

Prolonging bovine sperm-oocyte incubation in modified medium 199 improves embryo development rate and the viability of vitrified blastocysts.
This study was conducted to compare the efficacy of four in vitro fertilization (IVF) media: Bracket and Oliphant's medium (BO), modified medium 199 (IVF-M199), modified Tyrode's medium (MTM), andExpand
