Spatiotemporal expression of transcriptional regulators in concert with the maternal-to-embryonic transition during bovine in vitro embryogenesis.


Cleavage-stage bovine embryos are transcriptionally quiescent until they reach the 8- to 16-cell stage, and thus rely on the reserves provided by the stored maternal mRNAs and proteins found in the oocytes to achieve their first cell divisions. The objective of this study was to characterize the expression and localization of the transcriptional and… (More)
