Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is an essential technology in animal and human reproduction. However, the developmental competence and pregnancy rate of embryos derived from ICSI are still lower than that from the conventional in vitro fertilization technique. In this report, we focused on reactive oxygen species (ROS) as a potential detrimental factor for ICSI. Experiment 1 was conducted to evaluate the effect of oxidative stress by two different oxygen concentrations (20%: control vs… CONTINUE READING
