The developmental program of the embryo displays a plasticity that can result in long-acting effects that extend into postnatal life. In mammals, adult phenotype can be altered by changes in the maternal environment during the preimplantation period. One characteristic of developmental programming during this time is that the change in adult phenotype is(More)
Genomic imprinting is an epigenetic mechanism that leads to parental-allele-specific gene expression. Approximately 150 imprinted genes have been identified in humans and mice but less than 30 have been described as imprinted in cattle. For the purpose of de novo identification of imprinted genes in bovine, we determined global monoallelic gene expression(More)
The aim of the present study was to examine the role of oxytocin (OT) in the progesterone (P4) and prostaglandins (PGs) pathway to induce oocyte meiotic resumption. Cumulus-oocyte complexes were co-cultured with follicular hemisections for 15 h to determine the effects of different doses of OT or atosiban (ATO; oxytocin receptor antagonist) on oocyte(More)
T his issue of Variations presents four articles highlighting mod-eling research presented at the CLIVAR-sponsored workshop on Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere-Land Processes in the Atlantic held in Miami, March 23-2 5, 2011. The workshop reviewed model biases in simulating the Atlantic (notably ocean circulation, sea surface temperatures , surface winds, clouds,(More)
