Background In vitro fertilization (IVF) researches have suggested that cystathionine &bgr; synthase (CBS) is involved in oocyte development. However, little is known about the regional and cellular expression patterns of CBS in the ovary. The purpose of this study was to analyze the localization of CBS in mice ovaries and to investigate the expression profile during follicular development. Methods We used in situ hybridization and immunohistochemical analysis to determine CBS expression in the… 
Cystathionine β synthase participates in murine oocyte maturatione mediated by homocysteine
Evidence is provided that CBS participates in the process of oocyte maturation and that this effect may be fulfilled by conditioning the level of homocysteine in the microenvironment of the oocyte.
Role of cystathionine beta synthase in lipid metabolism in ovarian cancer
A novel role of cystathionine beta-synthase (CBS), a sulphur amino acid metabolizing enzyme highly expressed in several ovarian cancer cell lines, is identified in driving deregulated lipid metabolism in OC.
Dysregulation of hydrogen sulphide metabolism impairs oviductal transport of embryos.
It is shown that cystathionine-γ-lyase and cystATHionine -β-synthase are ubiquitously distributed in human fallopian tube epithelium and that H2S signalling relaxes the spontaneous contraction of the human oviduct.
Dual Effects of Hydrogen Sulfide Donor on Meiosis and Cumulus Expansion of Porcine Cumulus-Oocyte Complexes
The results suggest that the H2S donor influences oocytes maturation and thus also participates in the regulation of cumulus expansion, resulting in faster oocyte maturation with little need ofcumulus expansion.
Hydrogen Sulfide Donor Protects Porcine Oocytes against Aging and Improves the Developmental Potential of Aged Porcine Oocytes
The presence of exogenous H2S from a donor significantly suppressed the manifestations of aging, reversed the effects of inhibitors and resulted in the complete suppression of oocyte fragmentation.
Hydrogen Sulfide Impairs Meiosis Resumption in Xenopus laevis Oocytes
A contribution of H2S signaling in the timing of amphibian oocytes meiosis resumption is suggested, and this sensitivity was partially dependent on the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS).
The endogenous hydrogen sulfide generating system regulates ovulation.
It is concluded that the H2S generating system plays an important role in the propagation of the preovulatory cascade and rupture of the follicle at ovulation.
Endogenously produced hydrogen sulfide is involved in porcine oocyte maturation in vitro.
Hydrogen sulfide appears to be an important cell messenger during mammalian oocyte meiosis and adequate cumulus expansion during oocyte maturation and adequate Cumulus expansion.
Cystathionine-β-synthase: Molecular Regulation and Pharmacological Inhibition
Among the small-molecule CBS inhibitors, the review highlights the specificity and selectivity problems related to many of the commonly used “CBS inhibitors” and provides a comprehensive review of their pharmacological actions under physiological conditions and in various disease models.
Gasotransmitters in Gametogenesis and Early Development: Holy Trinity for Assisted Reproductive Technology—A Review
Overall understanding of gasotransmitters including their interaction is promising for reproductive medicine and assisted reproductive technologies (ART), because these approaches contend with failure of in vitro assisted reproduction.
