BACKGROUND Little is known of fatty acid metabolism in human embryos. This information would be useful in developing metabolic tests of embryo quality and improving embryo culture media. METHODS The fatty acid composition of human embryos and their ability to accumulate 13C labelled fatty acids was assessed in relation to the stage of development using gas-chromatography and combustion-isotope-ratio-mass spectrometry. RESULTS Compared with embryos which did not develop beyond the 4-cell… CONTINUE READING
