Abstract

Laparoscopic artificial insemination (LAI) is an intrauterine method of insemination, especially utilized in the small ruminant species to bypass their unique anatomically tortuous cervix. There are several advantages of LAI that include efficient use of processed semen leading to higher pregnancy...

Abstract

Mycoplasma agalactiae (Ma) is the main causative agent of ovine contagious agalactia, which is a serious disease of small ruminants. In endemic areas, its most common clinical situation consists of chronically infected herds, and asymptomatic infected individuals represent an epidemiological risk...

Abstract

In ruminants, IFN-tau (IFNT) is a pregnancy recognition signal secreted by the embryonic trophectoderm before implantation, and it induces the expression of IFN-stimulated genes (ISG) in the uterine endometrium and blood leukocytes. The expression of ISG in blood leukocytes could indicate the...

Abstract

The study of reproductive physiology in domestic ruminants has progressed from the whole animal to the molecular level in an amazingly short period of time. The volume of information on this subject is enormous; therefore, we have focused on domestic ruminants, with an emphasis on cattle. To date, ...

Abstract

The objective of the current study was to determine if Nerve Growth Factor-Beta (NGF), purified from bovine seminal plasma, would improve corpus luteum function and enhance conceptus development when administered to cows at artificial insemination. Angus cows (n=60) were synchronized using a...

Abstract

Pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (PAG) are expressed in the placenta of ungulate mammals. Ruminants secrete PAGs continuously from embryonic implantation until delivery. In this study, we evaluated the feasibility of using ELISA to detect PAG levels as a method for early pregnancy diagnosis in...
