The aim of this study was to test the simulated physiological oocyte maturation (SPOM)- adapted system during bovine oocyte maturation to improve embryo development. Oocytes were obtained from follicles of 3 to 8 mm in diameter that were aspirated from ovaries obtained from a slaughterhouse. To verify the effect of the maturation system on in vitro embryo(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of different maturation systems on oocyte resistance after vitrification and on the phospholipid profile of the oocyte plasma membrane (PM). Four different maturation systems were tested: 1) in vitro maturation using immature oocytes aspirated from slaughterhouse ovaries (CONT; n = 136); 2) in vitro(More)
This study aimed to quantify the expression of candidate genes in cumulus cells (CCs) from cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs) with high and low potential for in vitro development up to the blastocyst stage. First, the effects of individual culture and biopsy on embryo development were evaluated. Individuals cultured using the well of the well system were(More)
This study aimed to evaluate the effect of meiotic arrest using phosphodiesterase type 3A (PDE 3A) inhibitors, cilostamide and C-type natriuretic peptide (NPPC), on pre-maturation (PM) of oocytes to be used in the production of cloned embryos. Nuclear maturation, in vitro embryo production (IVP), somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) and parthenogenetic(More)
Embryo production by intrafollicular oocyte transfer (IFOT) represents an alternative for production of a large number of embryos without requiring any hormones and only basic laboratory handling. We aimed to (1) evaluate the efficiency of IFOT using immature oocytes (IFIOT) and (2) compare embryo development after IFIOT using fresh or vitrified immature(More)
In an attempt to improve in vitro embryo production, we investigated the effect of fibroblast growth factor 10 (FGF10) during in vitro maturation on the developmental capacity of bovine oocytes. Cumulus–oocyte complexes (COCs) were aspirated from follicles of 3–8 mm diameter. After selection, the COCs were matured in medium with or without 0.5 ng/mL of(More)
