The aim of the present study was to predict fetal sex at different time points of gestation in cattle by detecting the fetal SRY gene in cow plasma. Plasma DNA was extracted from the blood samples of 110 pregnant cows during the gestational period of 30 to 242 days. Nested PCR was employed to detect the fetal SRY, which the male fetus carries exclusively,(More)
Binucleate trophoblast giant cells (BNC) characteristically appear early in gestation in the bovine placenta. They secret pivotal hormones and cytokines for feto-maternal communication, for example, expression of placental lactogens (CSH1), prolactin-related protein 1 (PRP1) and pregnancy-associated glycoprotein 1 (PAG1) are necessary for pregnancy(More)
