Influence of caffeine pretreatment on biphasic in vitro maturation of dog oocytes.
Phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors have been utilized for in vitro maturation (IVM) of oocytes to manipulate the meiotic resumption and progression. Premature chromatin condensation and DNAExpand

Critical role of hyaluronidase-2 during preimplantation embryo development.
Biological functions of hyaluronan (HA) depend on its molecular size. Small size HAs are known to regulate cell proliferation; however, the expression of HA synthases (HASs) and hyaluronidase-2Expand

Hyaluronan and hyaluronidase, which is better for embryo development?
Our aim was to examine size-specific effects of Hyaluronan (HA) on preimplantation embryo development. We investigated the effects of Hyalovet (HA, 500-750 kDa; the size produced by HA synthase-3,Expand

Bovine P-selectin mediates leukocyte adhesion and is highly polymorphic in dairy breeds.
Bovine P-selectin (SELP) mediates leukocyte rolling and primes leukocyte adhesion to endothelium, both essential for leukocyte recruitment to an infection site. We investigated SELP-mediated adhesionExpand
