The aim of this work was to evaluate factors affecting ovum capture in superovulated buffaloes, by comparing the morphological features of pre-ovulatory follicles and oocytes, the intrafollicular and plasmatic steroid profile, as well as the expression of genes involved in cumulus expansion and steroid cascade in granulosa cells (GCs) and that of genes involved in contraction-relaxation of the oviduct between superovulated and synchronized buffaloes. Italian Mediterranean Buffalo cows were… CONTINUE READING
