Proteins of human follicular fluid: the blood-follicle barrier.
Effect of elevated calcium concentration on fertilization of rat oocytes in vitro
The results suggest that it may also affect the oocyte, and a modification of the medium of Toyoda and Chang which would permit high rates of fertilization in vitro in rats of the authors' colony was developed. Expand
Gases and electrolytes of human follicular fluid.
It is concluded that culture media based on 'physiological' saline solutions are appropriate for culture of oocytes because they had a more acid pH than blood plasma. Expand
Periovulatory expression of cholesterol side-chain cleavage cytochrome P-450 in cumulus cells.
The findings suggest the presence of a putative intraovarian suppressive factor which disappears before ovulation and thus render(s) the cumulus cells permissive for P-450scc responsiveness. Expand
Maturational effects of gonadotropins on the cumulus-oocyte complex of the rat.
Cumulus maturation is induced by the ovulatory surge of LH, and small differences were attributed to differences in circulating levels of gonadotropin as a function of time. Expand
Studies on the metabolic role of myo-inositol. Distribution of radioactive myo-inositol in the male rat.
The radioactive material present in liver, spleen, brain, heart, diaphragm, seminal vesicle, coagulating gland, prostate, epididymis, vas deferens and testis was shown to consist exclusively of myo-inositol and its derivatives, as shown by paper chromatography of hydrolysates and trichloroacetic acid extracts of these tissues.

A new and simple method of measuring menstrual blood loss.
A new and simple procedure for measuring blood on sanitary materials is developed, a modification of previous alkaline hematin methods but overcomes some of their major drawbacks, and can be used to assess both functional and dysfunctional uterine bleeding. Expand
Cryopreservation of rat blastocysts: a comparative study of different cryoprotectants and freezing/thawing methods.
The best method for preservation of rat blastocysts proved to be programmed cooling to -80 degrees C followed by fast thawing with glycerol as cryoprotectant (embryonic survival of 28.1%), and the proportion of embryos with good to excellent preservation of morphology was high. Expand
Human follicular fluid.
Intrauterine signaling and embryonic implantation.
This review treats the mechanisms which have been evoked to explain the implantation of the egg and the decidualization of the implanting endometrium, and investigates the role of the epithelium in this response. Expand
