Within the framework of studying the "2-cell block in vitro" phenomenon, two variants of inhibitory-induced stoppage of development at a two-cell stage were produced and analysed. Mimosine arrested the cleavage on the G1/S interface, and genistein at G2 stage of the second cell cycle. In the experimentally blocked embryos a detailed study was made of the(More)
The embryos from many outbred and inbred strains of mice are arrested at the late 2-cell stage when cultured in vitro in simple culture media. This phenomenon is referred to as the "2-cell block in vitro". The ultrastructural morphology of the nuclei of the blocked embryos is not yet well described. In the present paper we documented the results of a(More)
Changes in the distribution of mitochondria in the two-cell mouse embryos preceding the developmental arrest in vitro, caused by a genetically determined "two-cell block in vitro" or genisteine treatment, were examined vitally using the mitochondrial-specific probe rhodamine 123 and conventional fluorescence microscopy. In the former case, serious(More)
The capacity of sister blastomeres of mouse embryos for induced fusion changed during the 2-cell stage. It was at low level (24%) at the early 2-cell stage, increased and reached 98.5% at the middle 2-cell stage and fell sharply to 31% at the late 2-cell stage. At the time corresponding to the G2/M-phase of the cell cycle the blastomeres fused in only 8% of(More)
