Coats of preimplantation mammalian embryos as a target of reproductive technologies

Abstract

The structure and function of the mammalian oocyte and preimplantation embryo coverings are described in this review. The integrity of embryonic coverings is the main prerequisite for the success of such technology as preimplantation embryo freezing and, especially, for successful rederivation. On the other hand, results of in vitro fertilization and… (More)
