Xenotransplantation: a tool for reproductive biology and animal conservation?
Progress in ovarian banking and ovarian tissue transplantation is described, with emphasis on how fresh and frozen ovarian tissue can be used in assisted reproduction for both humans and animals. Expand
Effect of ovariectomy and graft position on cryopreserved common wombat (Vombatus ursinus) ovarian tissue following xenografting to nude mice.
It is shown that development of xenografted ovarian tissue to the antral follicle stage can be achieved irrespective of graft position, but increased graft recovery rates and follicle survival were evident after grafting under the kidney capsule compared with grafting to subcutaneous sites. Expand

It is envisage that it will not be long before the first live births across other species, including companion animals, non-domestic and endangered species, will be achieved. Expand
Preservation of female germ cells from ovaries of cat species.
This review provides an overview on recent knowledge on female germ cell population within cat ovaries; on isolation, culture and cryopreservation of feline preantral follicles and on ovarian tissueExpand
Patterns of scat deposition by brown hyaenas Hyaena brunnea in a mountain savannah region of South Africa
Abstract The brown hyaena Hyaena brunnea is a near threatened large carnivore inhabiting sub-Saharan Africa. Like many other species of terrestrial carnivores, brown hyaenas often and repeatedlyExpand
Faecal Progestagen Profiles in Wild Southern White Rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum simum)
The results show that non-invasive FPM measurements provide information on the pregnancy status of wild female white rhinoceroses, and may be used for the detection of pregnancy in free-living individuals, without the necessity of immobilization and/or relocation of the animal. Expand
Cryopreservation of ovarian tissue: an emerging technology for female germline preservation of endangered species and breeds.
The objective of this review is to summarize the current status of the cryopreservation of ovarian tissue in domestic species and non-endangered wild mammals as model for threatened and endangered species and breeds, and to provide new insights into techniques that can be applied in the future.

Cryopreservation of mouse ovarian tissue following prolonged exposure to an Ischemic environment.
It is concluded that ovarian tissues for cryobanking should be cryopreserved as soon as possible after collection or death of the animal to ensure maximal follicular survival. Expand
Comparison of the effects of in vitro and in situ storage on the viability of mouse ovarian tissue collected after death.
The results show that viable ovarian tissue can be salvaged from animals up to 48 h after death; however, in order to best protect the follicle population, the ovaries should be removed from the animal's body as soon as possible. Expand
Vitamin E-analog Trolox prevents endoplasmic reticulum stress in frozen-thawed ovarian tissue of capuchin monkey (Sapajus apella)
Medium supplementation with 50 μM Trolox prevents ER stress and protects ovarian tissue from ER-derived cytoplasmic vacuolization, and appears to be a key marker linking stress caused by freezing-thawing and cell vacuoling. Expand
