Experiments were carried out to investigate putative beneficial effects of adding epidermal growth factor (EGF) or insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) for bovine embryo culture in chemically defined media. Presumptive zygotes (18 h post-insemination) were randomly assigned to culture treatments. In experiment 1, treatments involved additions of recombinant(More)
Assisted reproduction technologies have made great progress during the last 15 years in most mammalian species, including humans. Growing evidence indicates that bovine pre-implantation development is a superior model for investigating early human development than the mouse. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of two basic culture(More)
The objective of these experiments was to assess putative embryotrophic effects of leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) on bovine preimplantation development in chemically defined media. Recombinant human LIF was added to embryo culture media at a concentration of 100 ng/ml. When added for culture of morulae LIF had no positive effect on the proportion of(More)
Experiments were carried out to investigate the beneficial effects of IGF-I or EGF on bovine embryo development in chemically defined embryo culture media and resultant incidences of nuclear DNA fragmentation as an indication of embryo quality. Presumptive IVF zygotes were randomly cultured in either control (with no added growth factor) or treatment(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the response of human ovarian xenografts to transplantation into different sites and in different host conditions. DESIGN Controlled experiment. SETTING Academic research laboratory. PATIENT(S) Donated ovarian tissue from two young women. INTERVENTION(S) Human ovarian cortical pieces were transplanted either under the kidney(More)
Three separate trials of bovine embryo transfers were performed consisting of 32, 41 and 33 transfers, respectively, to examine the effects of (a) the developmental stage of in vitro-derived blastocysts, (b) the amount of interferon-tau (IFN-tau) they secreted during culture and (c) the cyclic stage of the recipient at the time of transfer on the(More)
The present work was designed to study the in vitro and in vivo viability, as assessed by blastocyst formation, pregnancy rate and term delivery of bovine embryos produced under completely defined conditions with or without insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) following direct transfer after cryopreservation. Slaughterhouse-derived bovine oocytes were(More)
The present study aimed to improve the oocyte vitrification procedure for preservation of Thai native cattle genetic resources. In Experiment I, oocytes were exposed to various doses (2%, 4% and 6%) of ethylene glycol (EG) in vitrification solution I (VS-I) for different equilibration times (10 or 20 min) before being exposed to VS-II and then subjected to(More)
This study investigates the effects of iodixanol supplementation in varied concentrations to Tris egg yolk (TEY) extender on the quality and fertilization ability of frozen-thawed sperm of Thai native bulls. Each ejaculate was divided into four different groups, as follows: sperm were treated with TEY extender (control group) and TEY extender supplemented(More)
