Recombinant bovine interferon-τ enhances in vitro development of bovine embryos by upregulating expression of connexin 43 and E-cadherin.


Interferon-τ (IFNT), produced in ruminants by embryonic trophoblastic cells before implantation, is involved in the maternal recognition of pregnancy. It is a pleiotropic molecule that alters the synthesis of endometrial proteins and inhibits the proliferation of some cells. The present study investigated the effects of recombinant bovine IFNT on the… (More)
