This study was conducted to investigate the effect of silencing nucleophosmin in the development of in vitro-produced bovine embryos. Nucleophosmin is an abundant multifunctional nucleolar phosphoprotein that participates, for example, in ribosome biogenesis or centrosome duplication control. We showed that although the transcription of embryonic(More)
The degradation of maternal proteins is one of the most important events during early development, and it is presumed to be essential for embryonic genome activation (EGA), but the precise mechanism is still not known. It is thought that a large proportion of the degradation of maternal proteins is mediated by the ubiquitin-proteolytic system. In this study(More)
Proper timing of degradation of maternal protein reserves is important for early embryonic development. The major modification that triggers proteins to degradation is ubiquitination, mediated by ubiquitin-proteolytic system. We focus here on Skp 1-Cul 1-F-box complex (SCF-complex), E3 ubiquitin-ligase, a part of ubiquitin-proteolytic system, which transfer(More)
