The scarce amount of DNA contained in a single cell is a limiting factor for clinical application of preimplantation genetic diagnosis mainly due to the risk of misdiagnosis caused by allele dropout and the difficulty in obtaining copy number variations in all 23 pairs of chromosomes. Multiple displacement amplification (MDA) has been reported to generate(More)
When coupled with multiple displacement amplification (MDA), microarray-based comparative genomic intensity allows detection of chromosome copy number aberrations even in single or few cells, but the actual performance of the system and their influencing factors have not been well defined. Here, using single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) array, we analyzed(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the fidelity of multiple displacement amplification (MDA) from small number of cells (1-10 cells) by 10K 2.0 SNP mapping array. METHODS A fibroblast cell line (Tri-18; GM02732, 47, XY, +18) was used as the template, and 6 groups were set up in the study. Groups A and B were positive and negative control, respectively; groups C-F were(More)
The predictive value of anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) in Chinese women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment is data deficient. To determine the attributes of AMH in IVF, oocyte yield, cycle cancellation, and pregnancy outcomes were analyzed. All patients initiating their first IVF cycle with gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist treatment in(More)
BACKGROUND Cell-free nuclear DNA has been isolated from spent embryo culture medium. Whether this small amount of DNA can be amplified at the whole genome level and the concordance rate of karyotypes and specific alleles between biopsied cells and media has not been evaluated. METHODS Seven couples were recruited, 88 donated embryos and their(More)
β-Elemene is a major bioactive sesquiterpenoids compound isolated from the essential oils of Curcuma Wenyujin, a Chinese medicinal herb that treats tumor in clinics. However anti-atherosclerotic effects of β-elemene have not been fully investigated in vivo. The objective of this study is to further elucidate the anti-atherosclerotic activities of β-elemene(More)
