This review provides an overview on recent knowledge on female germ cell population within cat ovaries; on isolation, culture and cryopreservation of feline preantral follicles and on ovarian tissue preservation. 
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
Short-term culture of ovarian cortex pieces to assess the cryopreservation outcome in wild felids for genome conservation
TLDR
This is the first report of preserving a huge amount of follicles within ovarian tissue by slow freezing performed in several wild feline species, and it is concluded that the freezing protocol was suitable for felids. Expand
Ovarian and testicular tissue xenografting: its potential for germline preservation of companion animals, non-domestic and endangered species.
TLDR
It is envisage that it will not be long before the first live births across other species, including companion animals, non-domestic and endangered species, will be achieved. Expand
Bioengineering the ovarian follicle microenvironment.
TLDR
This review describes the application of tissue engineering principles to promote ovarian follicle maturation and produce mature oocytes through either in vitro culture or transplantation. Expand
Mammalian reproduction out of cryopreserved cells and tissues: current state of the art and future options
TLDR
The various current and emerging preservation technologies are reviewed, and their advantages and limitations are discussed. Expand
Utilization of Oocytes Collected from Preserved Ovarian for In Vitro Production of Cat Embryos
TLDR
Female germ cells of cat ovary preserved at 4 °C in PBS for 2 days were still viable for in vitro fertilization and thus can be utilized for in vivo production of cat embryos. Expand
High-resolution ultrasonography of xenografted domestic cat ovarian cortex.
Transplantation of ovarian tissue has high potential for female gamete conservation. However, optimal timing of oocyte recovery for in vitro maturation and fertilization is still critical. ThereforeExpand
Cryopreservation of canine ovarian cortex using DMSO or 1,3-propanediol.
TLDR
The survival of canine oocytes within ovarian cortex cryopreserved by slow freezing using 1.5-M DMSO was demonstrated and postthaw viability was significantly reduced. Expand
Preservation of female genetic resources in feline species.
TLDR
The presented review will summarize recent advances and obstacles in biobanking of female genetic resources and discuss alternative approaches which are under investigation. Expand
In vitro survival of follicles collected from domestic cats' ovaries at different stages of oestrous cycle and cultured with IGF-1.
TLDR
The data suggest that in vitro growth and GC survival of feline preantral follicles are affected by the oestrous cycle phase, and the IGF-1 exerts a positive effect on follicles collected at the luteal phase. Expand

Generation of Live Young from Xenografted Mouse Ovaries
TLDR
The culture of primordial follicles as a method of oocyte maturation has had a positive effect on the quality and quantity of mature, fertilizable oocytes in ART studies. Expand
Survival of frozen-thawed human ovarian fetal follicles in long-term organ culture.
Ovarian follicles obtained from second and third-trimester human fetuses survived 4 weeks in organ culture and secreted 17-beta estradiol (E(2)).
Follicle development following cryopreservation of human ovarian tissue.
TLDR
Development of numerous antral follicles following xenografting of cryopreserved tissue indicates that the cryop Reservation procedure can preserve the developmental competence of primordial follicles. Expand
The development of methods for isolation and culture of preantral follicles from bovine and porcine ovaries
TLDR
How close the authors are to achieving ‘oocyte farming’ for domestic species is discussed and the latest developments in these techniques are highlighted. Expand
The recovery of preantral follicles from ovaries of domestic cats and their characterisation before and after culture
TLDR
The mechanical dissection of ovaries from domestic cats provided high numbers of preantral follicles with diameters of 40–90 μm and the addition of epidermal growth factor (EGF) and insulin-transferrin-selenite (ITS) to the culture medium prevented these alterations in structure. Expand
Early massive follicle loss and apoptosis in heterotopically grafted newborn mouse ovaries.
TLDR
The results of the present study indicate that transplantation rather than cryopreservation accounts for the major and early loss of primordial follicles in grafted newborn mouse ovaries. Expand
New methods for gamete rescue from gonads of nondomestic felids.
TLDR
The reproductive competence of oocytes collected post mortem was demonstrated by development to embryos (> or = 8 cells) in vitro and the results demonstrate the possibility of retrospective assessment of male and female reproductive capacity. Expand
Development of antral follicles in cryopreserved cat ovarian tissue transplanted to immunodeficient mice.
TLDR
Frozen-thawed cat ovarian cortex tissue not only survived xenotransplantation, it also contained follicles able to grow to antral stages, and gonadotropin treatment in this model resulted in luteinization of antral follicles but enhancement of follicular growth and ovulation did not occur. Expand
Xenotransplantation: a tool for reproductive biology and animal conservation?
TLDR
Progress in ovarian banking and ovarian tissue transplantation is described, with emphasis on how fresh and frozen ovarian tissue can be used in assisted reproduction for both humans and animals. Expand
Zebu (Bos indicus) ovarian preantral follicles: morphological characterization and development of an efficient isolation method.
TLDR
It was shown that a simple, mechanical method can be used effectively to isolate a large number of intact preantral follicles from Zebu cow ovaries, with a high recovery rate. Expand
