The implantation period is a critical time for embryonic survival in pigs. During this period, numerous growth factors are secreted by the conceptuses and the uterine endometrium in order to establish pregnancy and to provide a proper environment for embryonic development. It is well known that the Chinese Meishan sows have a larger litter size when compared with occidental sows mainly because of a superior embryonic survival rate. As a further step toward understanding the mechanisms involved… CONTINUE READING
