Effect of Maternal Heat Stress on Viability of Early Preimplantation Mouse Embryos in vivo and in vitro

Abstract

It is generally accepted that maternal heat stress during early pregnancy reduces fertility in mammalian species. Preimplantation embryos are sensitive to heat stress, and acute elevation of temperature causes a decrease of embryonic viability and subsequent development rate to the blastocyst stage in mouse (Arechiga et al., 1998). In dairy cows, high… (More)
