The role of exogenous protein during bovine pre-implantation embryo development in two in vitro production systems was investigated. Morphological development, survival after vitrification and metabolic activity before and after vitrification were recorded in blastocysts generated in vitro in synthetic oviduct fluid (SOF) medium in the presence of either bovine serum albumin (BSA) or polyvinyl-alcohol (PVA). Metabolic activity was determined by measuring oxygen consumption, glucose and pyruvate… CONTINUE READING
