The protein content of cattle oocytes and preimplantation embryos produced in vivo, from the two-cell to the elongated blastocyst at day 16, was determined. From the oocyte to the expanded blastocyst stage (day 8), protein determination was carried out on zona pellucida-enclosed embryos. Protein content was measured by the Pierce Micro BCA protein assay. The mean protein content of oocytes was 0.126 micrograms, with no significant increase at the two-cell stage (0.132 micrograms). Protein… CONTINUE READING
