Respiration rates correlate with mRNA expression of G6PD and GLUT1 genes in individual bovine in vitro-produced blastocysts.


Quantification of embryo respiration is a promising procedure to assess embryonic metabolism and possibly select viable embryos. At the blastocyst stage, ATP is produced by glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation, processes that require uptake of oxygen and glucose, which is regulated by the expression of GLUT1 and G6PD. The purpose of the present study… (More)
