Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate butaphosphan and cyanocobalamin effects on the production of oocytes in vivo and in vitro embryo production (IVP) during an ovum pick up (OPU) protocol. Thirty-six cows were homogeneously divided into two groups. The butaphosphan and cyanocobalamin group (CAT, n = 17), received 4500 mg of butaphosphan and 2.25 mg of cyanocobalamin and the control group (CONT, n = 19) received placebo (NaCl 0.9%). Treatment was performed at 14, 9, and 5 d prior the… Expand
Effect of butafosfan supplementation during oocyte maturation on bovine embryo development
The results suggest that butafosfan is prejudicial for oocytes, compromising cleavage and embryo development, and can represent an alternative to increase reproductive efficiency in cows. Expand


Effect of butaphosphan and cyanocobalamin on postpartum metabolism and milk production in dairy cows.
Results indicate that injections of BTPC during the early postpartum period can reduce NEFA and BHB concentrations and increase milk production in Holstein cows. Expand
First report about the mode of action of combined butafosfan and cyanocobalamin on hepatic metabolism in nonketotic early lactating cows.
In the liver, the mRNA abundance of acyl-coenzyme A synthetase long-chain family member 1, involved in fatty acid oxidation and biosynthesis, was lower across time points after the treatment for TG compared with CG cows, and certain effects of combined butafosfan and cyanocobalamin were observed on mRNA abundance.

The effect of injectable butaphosphan and cyanocobalamin on postpartum serum beta-hydroxybutyrate, calcium, and phosphorus concentrations in dairy cattle.
It is suggested that injection of butaphosphan and cyanocobalamin on the day of calving and 1 d later may decrease the prevalence of subclinical ketosis during the week after calving in mature dairy cows, but not in first- and second-lactation animals. Expand
Metabolic parameters and dry matter intake of ewes treated with butaphosphan and cyanocobalamin in the early postpartum period
a b s t r a c t The objective of this study was to determine the effects of butaphosphan and cyanocobal- amin injection on the dry matter intake and metabolic parameters of early postpartum ewes.Expand
Factors affecting folliculogenesis in ruminants
The relationship between oocyte quality, in both healthy follicles and those follicles destined for atresia, must be resolved before the future potential for increasing embryo yield can be predicted and a greater understanding of the factors affecting folliculogenesis in ruminants should ensure that the full benefits ensuing from the precise control of ovarian function are achieved.

Ovarian activity and reproductive performance of dairy cows fed different amounts of phosphorus.
Overall, varying dietary P from 0.35 to 0.47% did not affect postpartum ovarian activity, reproductive performance, or milk production. Expand
Regulation of folliculogenesis and the determination of ovulation rate in ruminants.
The updated model has more extensive integration of the morphological, molecular and cellular events during folliculogenesis with systemic events in the whole animal and incorporates knowledge on factors that influence oocyte quality and the critical roles of the oocyte in regulating follicular development and ovulation rate.

Impact of Nutrition on Oocyte Quality: Cumulative Effects of Body Composition and Diet Leading to Hyperinsulinemia in Cattle1
The results show that the effect of feeding level on oocyte quality is dependent on the body condition of the animal, with the high level of feeding being beneficial to oocyte from animals of low body condition but detrimental to oocytes from animal of moderately high body condition. Expand
Influence of the length of proestrus on fertility and endocrine function in female cattle.
Decreased circulating concentrations of estradiol during the preovulatory period and/or reduced concentrations of progesterone during the subsequent estrous cycle in cows that do not experience a shortened luteal phase may represent the mechanism responsible for reduced fertility with the SPE treatment.

Relationship between follicle size and ultrasound-guided transvaginal oocyte recovery.
Routine aspiration of small follicles (< or =4 mm) could increase the number of oocytes available for in vitro development and reduce the need for gonadotrophic therapy. Expand
