Experiments were conducted with in vitro-produced bovine embryos to determine whether 1) increased culture temperatures (i.e., heat shock) adversely affected embryonic development, 2) embryos become more resistant to heat shock as they advance in development, and 3) selective antioxidant molecules alleviate heat shock effects on embryonic development. Development of 2-cell embryos to > or = 16-cell stage on d 5 after in vitro fertilization was not affected by a heat shock of 40 degrees C for 3… CONTINUE READING
