The in vitro developmental competence of equine oocytes is still low in comparison with other domestic mammals. A major factor affecting the viability of cells during in vitro culture is the increased oxidative stress. Oxidative modifications could be responsible for oocyte incompetence for in vitro maturation (IVM). Cysteamine, a glutathione (GSH) synthesis enhancer, has been shown to increase intracellular GSH content and to improve embryo development when added during IVM of bovine, porcine… CONTINUE READING
