High follicular testosterone levels have been associated with a skew in the sex ratio in favor of males following in vitro fertilization, whereas egg incubation temperature has been found to influence sex ratio in some reptiles. The incubation temperature interferes with the aromatase activity, resulting in a sex determination mechanism thought to be lost in mammals. In this work we aimed to test the effects of testosterone on sex ratio of bovine embryos produced in vitro and to determine… CONTINUE READING
