Antiapoptotic and embryotrophic effects of alpha-tocopherol and L-ascorbic acid on porcine embryos derived from in vitro fertilization and somatic cell nuclear transfer.


The objective was to determine optimal concentrations of alpha-tocopherol and l-ascorbic acid for development of porcine embryos derived from in vitro-fertilization (IVF) or somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT). The frequency of blastocyst formation in IVF embryos was 17.6, 28.6, 32.4 and 21.4% for control, 50, 100 and 200microM alpha-tocopherol… (More)
