Genome analysis of the platypus reveals unique signatures of evolution
TLDR
This corrects the article to show that the method used to derive the H2O2 “spatially aggregating force” is based on a two-step process, not a single step, like in the previous version of this paper. Expand
Genome analysis of the platypus reveals unique signatures of evolution
TLDR
It is found that reptile and platypus venom proteins have been co-opted independently from the same gene families; milk protein genes are conserved despite platypuses laying eggs; and immune gene family expansions are directly related to platypUS biology. Expand
Effect of cooling and cryopreservation on sperm motility and morphology of several species of marsupial.
TLDR
Sperm motility in the fat-tailed dunnart was retained for up to six days when cooled to 4 degrees C, suggesting that sperm from this species have some degree of tolerance to cold shock, although after this time, however, the percentage of motile spermatozoa and their motility rating declined. Expand
Seasonal changes in the testis, accessory glands and ejaculate characteristics of the southern hairy-nosed wombat, Lasiorhinus latifrons (Marsupialia : Vombatidae)
TLDR
The data confirm that male reproduction in the southern hairy-nosed wombat, like that of the female, is highly seasonal with a peak in reproductive capacity occurring in August-September and a reduction by November. Expand
Human pregnancy by in vitro fertilization (IVF) using sperm aspirated from the epididymis
TLDR
Spermatozoa were collected by microaspiration from the corpus epididymidis of a 42-year-old man with secondary obstructive azoospermia and used for in vitro fertilization and an ongoing pregnancy was confirmed. Expand
Factors influencing paternity success in Antechinus agilis: last‐male sperm precedence, timing of mating and genetic compatibility
TLDR
The patterns of paternity success from laboratory mating experiments conducted in Antechinus agilis, a small size dimorphic carnivorous marsupial, are described, where males that mated closer to ovulation sired more offspring and variation appeared also to be caused by differences in genetic compatibility of the female and the male. Expand
Burrow use and ranging behaviour of the southern hairy‐nosed wombat (Lasiorhinus latifrons) in the Murraylands, South Australia
TLDR
It seems likely that the use of burrows and a specialized diet are important energy saving strategies for this species in such unpredictable regions of South Australia. Expand
The features of sperm maturation in the epididymis of a marsupial, the brushtailed possum Trichosurus vulpecula.
TLDR
Despite broad similarities in the features of sperm maturation in this marsupial and in eutherian mammals, there are distinct differences in the structural organisation of their spermatozoa, particularly in the pserm head. Expand
Successful in vitro culture of pre-antral follicles derived from vitrified murine ovarian tissue: oocyte maturation, fertilization, and live births.
TLDR
This study shows that successful production of healthy offspring using an in vitro follicle culture system is feasible, and suggests that this procedure could be used in cancer patients who wish to preserve their fertility using ovarian tissue cryopreservation. Expand
