Chemical activation of buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) oocytes by different methods: effects of aging on post-parthenogenetic development.


The possibility of artificially inducing activation of MII buffalo oocytes may allow us to evaluate indirectly the quality of oocytes after in vitro maturation. The aim of this work was to compare buffalo embryo development after IVF and after chemical activation by two different agents. A further goal was to evaluate the effects of aging of oocytes on post… (More)
