Mechanisms for gametes and embryos to interact with their maternal environment are crucial in achieving reproductive success, both in livestock and the human. Long-range (hormones) and short-range signalling molecules play important roles in mediating cell-cell maternal interactions/communications with gametes and embryos. Slight malfunctions or disturbances of the environment that host this interaction can retard embryonic development. This may lead to creation of a memory for the embryo… CONTINUE READING
