Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) has been implicated in the potent modulation of synaptic plasticity at both pre-synaptic and post-synaptic sites. However, the molecular mechanism underlying BDNF-mediated pre-synaptic modulation remains incompletely understood. Here, we report that BDNF treatment for over 4 h could significantly enhance the(More)
The in vitro maturation (IVM) efficiency of porcine embryos is still low because of poor oocyte quality. Although brilliant cresyl blue positive (BCB+) oocytes with low glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH) activity have shown superior quality than BCB negative (-) oocytes with high G6PDH activity, the use of a BCB staining test before IVM is still(More)
