Our aim was to evaluate if loading prepubertal ovine oocyte with trehalose would impact on their further developmental potential in vitro and if it would improve their survival to vitrification procedures. COCs matured in vitro with (TRH) or without (CTR) 100mM trehalose were tested for developmental potential after in vitro fertilization and culture. Trehalose uptake was measured by the antrone spectrophotometric assay. No differences were recorded between the two experimental groups in… CONTINUE READING
