Autophagy degrades cytoplasmic proteins and organelles to recycle cellular components that are required for cell survival and tissue homeostasis. However, it is not clear how autophagy is regulated in mammalian cells. WASH (Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP) and SCAR homologue) plays an essential role in endosomal sorting through facilitating tubule(More)
The giant panda skeletal muscle cells, uterus epithelial cells and mammary gland cells from an adult individual were cultured and used as nucleus donor for the construction of intenpecies embryos by transferring them into enucleated rabbit eggs. All the three kinds of somatic cells were able to reprogram in rabbit ooplasm and support early embryo(More)
Pluripotent stem cells, including induced pluripotent and embryonic stem cells (ESCs), have less developed mitochondria than somatic cells and, therefore, rely more heavily on glycolysis for energy production. 1-3 However, how mitochondrial homeostasis matches the demands of nuclear reprogramming and regulates pluripotency in ESCs is largely unknown. Here,(More)
The present study was designed to examine whether in vitro produced porcine embryos can be used to establish an embryonic stem (ES) cell line. Porcine embryos were produced by in vitro maturation and in vitro fertilization. Embryos at the 4-cell to blastocyst stages were cultured in an ES medium containing 16% fetal bovine serum with mouse embryonic(More)
It is well established that the decline in female reproductive outcomes is related to postovulatory aging of oocytes and advanced maternal age. Poor oocyte quality is correlated with compromised genetic integrity and epigenetic changes during the oocyte aging process. Here, we review the epigenetic alterations, mainly focused on DNA methylation, histone(More)
Mammalian oocytes undergo an asymmetrical first meiotic division, extruding half of their chromosomes in a small polar body to preserve maternal resources for embryonic development. To divide asymmetrically, mammalian oocytes relocate chromosomes from the center of the cell to the cortex, but little is known about the underlying mechanisms. Here, we show(More)
With the rapid development of wireless sensor networks, the monitoring system which is dedicated to monitor wireless sensor networks is paid more and more attention, therefore, the researches of monitoring interface for WSNs also become extremely important. The paper is mainly targeted at the design of monitoring interface for wireless sensor networks node,(More)
Somatic cell nuclear transfer and transcription factor mediated reprogramming are two widely used techniques for somatic cell reprogramming. Both fully reprogrammed nuclear transfer embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells hold potential for regenerative medicine, and evaluation of the stem cell pluripotency state is crucial for these(More)
Mouse round spermatids were electrofused with homologous mature oocytes to examine the behaviour of their nuclei within the ooplasm and the abilities of development. A single spermatid was injected in the perivitelline space of a mature oocyte and an electron fusion pulse was given. The best round spermatid-oocyte pairs (RS-O) fusion took place at 20–30 s(More)
