The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of omega-3 α-linolenic acid (ALA) added to the IVM medium on embryo development of prepubertal sheep oocytes. Experiment 1 investigated the effect of ALA at different concentrations (0 [control], 50, 100, and 200 μM) and DMSO (100 μM) in IVM media on cumulus cell expansion and oocyte nuclear maturation and on synthesis of prostaglandins (PGE2 and PGF2α). Experiment 2 investigated the effects of ALA at different concentrations in the IVM… CONTINUE READING
