This study was conducted to determine the effects of biophoton treatment during in vitro maturation (IVM) and/or in vitro culture (IVC) on oocyte maturation and embryonic development in pigs. An apparatus capable of generating homogeneous biophoton energy emissions was placed in an incubator. Initially, immature pig oocytes were matured in the biophoton-equipped incubator in medium 199 supplemented with cysteine, epidermal growth factor, insulin, and gonadotrophic hormones for 22 h, after which…

Pig oocytes with a large perivitelline space matured in vitro show greater developmental competence after parthenogenesis and somatic cell nuclear transfer

TLDR
It is demonstrated that pig oocytes with a large PVS have greater developmental competence after parthenogenesis and SCNT, which is attributed to improved cytoplasmic maturation based on the enhanced GSH level and transcription factor expression.

Developmental competence of in vivo and in vitro matured porcine oocytes after subzonal sperm injection

TLDR
Ooplasmic incompetence in porcine in vitro matured oocytes is the major cause of their limited developmental competence, and Cytoplasmic maturation measured by male pronucleus formation does not directly reflect developmental competence of the oocytes.

Post‐activation treatment with demecolcine improves development of somatic cell nuclear transfer embryos in pigs by modifying the remodeling of donor nuclei

TLDR
It is demonstrated that post‐activation treatment with Dc improves preimplantation development and supports normal in vivo development of SCNT pig embryos, probably because Dc induces formation of a single PN and this leads to normal nuclear ploidy.

Birth of Piglets Derived from Porcine Zygotes Cultured in a Chemically Defined Medium1

TLDR
It is indicated that porcine zygotes can develop into blastocysts in a chemically defined medium and to full term by transfer to recipients after culture.

Glutathione and adenosine triphosphate content of in vivo and in vitro matured porcine oocytes

TLDR
Low intracellular GSH may be responsible, in part, for lower developmental competence observed in in vitro matured porcine oocytes, andIntracellular ATP content does not appear to be related to developmental potential in porcines oocytes.

Glutathione synthesis during in vitro maturation of bovine oocytes: role of cumulus cells.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that IVM medium supplemented with cysteine or cysteamine increased GSH content in oocytes without cumulus mass (DO) and in the absence of a cumulus cell monolayer, which may be useful to increase the efficacy of IVM of those oocytes having fewcumulus cell layers, in a system without coculture.

Development of in-vitro-derived bovine embryos cultured in 5% CO2 in air or in 5% O2, 5% CO2 and 90% N2.

TLDR
OCN gas mixture provides a suitable atmosphere for early embryo growth in vitro and mBECM + FBS in the optimal culture medium under this atmosphere.
