  • Recent improvements in cryopreservation of mammalian eggs enable the long-term preservation of female germ cells in several mammalian species. Nevertheless, cryopreservation of porcine oocytes is still considered as a challenge. Although the use of vitrification techniques result in reasonable survival rates, developmental competence of vitrified oocytes has been compromised. Alterations of zona characteristics, cytoskeleton, mitochondrial functions and antioxidant-defense ability caused by… CONTINUE READING
