In the present paper we aim to review the development of both ovarian and testicular xenografting with specific emphasis on its usage for companion animals, non-domestic and endangered species. Ovarian and testicular tissue xenografting has been used successfully across a variety of species for the harvesting of mature gametes and subsequent fertilisation. It has become a novel and promising tool to explore various aspects of testicular development and function and was useful for determination… Expand
Potential and challenges of testis tissue xenografting from diverse ruminant species
TLDR
An overview of the contributions by the author and colleagues and a critical examination of the salient literature on TTX, as well as examples of its variety of current and potential applications for research in male reproductive biology and technologies using ruminant models are discussed. Expand
Cryopreservation of ovarian tissue: an emerging technology for female germline preservation of endangered species and breeds.
TLDR
The objective of this review is to summarize the current status of the cryopreservation of ovarian tissue in domestic species and non-endangered wild mammals as model for threatened and endangered species and breeds, and to provide new insights into techniques that can be applied in the future. Expand
Xenografting of sheep testis tissue and isolated cells as a model for preservation of genetic material from endangered ungulates.
TLDR
Testis tissue de novo morphogenesis from isolated cells could open interesting options to recover germ cells from mature males with impaired spermatogenesis, and xenografting of testis tissue might be useful to obtain sperm from immature endangered ungulates that die prematurely. Expand
Testicular stem cells for fertility preservation: Preclinical studies on male germ cell transplantation and testicular grafting
TLDR
Since future improvements of germ cell transplantation and grafting approaches can be assumed, bioptic retrieval and cryopreservation of testicular tissue fragments should be performed in oncological patients at high risk of fertility loss since this is their only option to maintain their fertility potential. Expand
Cryopreservation and transplantation of gonadal tissue for genetic conservation and biological research in avian species
TLDR
A model of cryobanking avian gonadal tissue using a simple vitrification method is provided, and future directions in improving transplantation tolerance and using gonadal transplantation in avian research are suggested. Expand
Xenografting as a Tool to Preserve Endangered Species: Outcomes and Challenges in Model Systems
TLDR
The application of xenografting implies the development of subsequent ART techniques to produce offspring from the recovered material, and new methods to preserve and transport testis tissue from valuable animals are emerging. Expand
Animal models for fertility preservation in the male.
TLDR
This review highlights current and future options for male fertility preservation with a special focus on animal models and a consideration of the various disciplines in need of novel tools. Expand
Cryopreservation of mammalian ovaries and oocytes
TLDR
An overview on the recent knowledge of female germ cell cryopreservation is provided, with a focus on wildlife species, and the Felid Gametes Rescue Project within European Association of Zoos and Aquaria zoos is introduced. Expand
Recent developments in testis tissue xenografting.
TLDR
Recent advances that have been obtained with both techniques that represent novel opportunities to explore testis development and spermatogenesis in diverse mammalian species are reviewed. Expand
Normal reproductive development of offspring derived by intracytoplasmic injection of porcine sperm grown in host mice.
TLDR
Both male and female Xeno-ICSI pigs had normal reproductive abilities, and parameters of semen quality, including volume, pH, sperm concentration, and the percentage of motile sperm were not different from those in conventional pigs. Expand

193 TESTIS TISSUE XENOGRAFTING TO PRESERVE GERM CELLS FROM A CLONED BANTENG CALF
TLDR
Results indicate that banteng spermatogenesis was initiated in the mouse host but became arrested at meiosis as observed previously in xenografts of immature bovine or equine testis. Expand
Testicular xenografts: a novel approach to study cytotoxic damage in juvenile primate testis.
TLDR
Data indicate that xenografting of testicular monkey tissue is a valid approach to detect the busulfan-induced germ cell damage and serves as a powerful experimental tool to study cytotoxic effects in developing primate testis. Expand
Birth of offspring following transplantation of cryopreserved immature testicular pieces and in-vitro microinsemination.
TLDR
This approach of 'testicular tissue banking' is a promising technique for the preservation of fertility in prepubertal male oncology patients and Xenogeneic transplantation into immunodeficient mice may provide a system for studying spermatogenic failure in infertile men. Expand
A game of cat and mouse: xenografting of testis tissue from domestic kittens results in complete cat spermatogenesis in a mouse host.
TLDR
The potential of xenografting to achieve full spermatogenesis in testis tissue from kittens is demonstrated and sperm production in a mouse host can provide an alternative for germ line preservation from immature felids where sperm cryopreservation is not an option. Expand
Xenografting of canine ovarian tissue to ovariectomized severe combined immunodeficient (SCID) mice.
TLDR
F follicular development after xenotransplantation of fresh canine ovarian tissue into immunodeficient mice showed changes not consistent with the oestrous cycle of either bitches or mice, indicating that inappropriate communication may occur between the recipient hypothalamic-pituitary glands and the axis of the xenograft gonad.

Germ cell development in equine testis tissue xenografted into mice
TLDR
The results indicate that horse spermatogenesis occurs in a mouse host albeit with low efficiency, and the underlying mechanisms of this sperMatogenic arrest require further investigation. Expand
