PEL cell lines infected with KSHV, but negative for Epstein-Barr virus have a tumorigenic potential in non-obese diabetic/severe combined immunodeficient mice and result in efficient engraftment and formation of malignant ascites with notable(More)
The objective of this investigation was to determine whether intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) can be performed in the mouse. Metaphase II oocytes were obtained from F1 hybrid mice (C57BL x CBA) by i.p. injections of 10 IU pregnant mare's serum gonadotrophin (PMSG) and human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) administered 48 h apart. Oocytes with cumulus(More)
The optimal concentrations of individual amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins, osmolytes and energy sources were determined using a 1-cell Swiss outbred (SO) and or F(1) [(CBAxC57BL/6J)xSO] mouse assay in Earle's balanced salt solution containing bovine serum albumin. Based on the findings of these experiments, a number of media were formulated. Of these,(More)
