AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of ovarian tissue vitrification and two-step in vitro culture on the metaphase II (MII) oocyte reactive oxygen species (ROS) level, mitochondrial transcription factor A (TFAM) expression and succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) activity. After collection...

Abstract

Background: Stallion fertility is an economically important trait due to the increase of artificial insemination in horses. The availability of whole genome sequence data facilitates identification of rare high-impact variants contributing to stallion fertility. The aim of our study was to genotype ...

Abstract

A major unresolved issue in the cloning of mammals by somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) is the mechanism by which the process fails after embryos are transferred to the uterus of recipients before or during the implantation window. We investigated this problem by using RNA sequencing (RNA-seq)...

Abstract

Although more than 100 imprinted genes have already been identified in the mouse and human genomes, little is known about genomic imprinting in cattle. For a better understanding of these genes in cattle, parthenogenetically activated bovine blastocysts were transferred to recipient cows to obtain...

Abstract

This special issue presents papers which focus on 'Epigenetics and periconception environment'. Different aspects of epigenetic mechanisms and how they are influenced by the periconception environment, in the broader sense, are highlighted. Topics include: epigenetic processes in the male germline; ...

Abstract

Many methods for efficient production of transgenic animals for biomedical research have been developed. Despite great improvements in transgenesis rates resulting from the use of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), the ICSI-based sperm-mediated gene-transfer (iSMGT) technique is still not...

Abstract

Transgenic mice are increasingly used as animal models for studies of gene function and regulation of mammalian genes. Although there has been continuous and remarkable progress in the development of transgenic technology over several decades, many aspects of the resulting transgenic model's...

Abstract

This book presents a collection of novel methods for the production of a wide range of transgenic animals. It focuses largely on mice, but protocols for successful transgenesis in rats, cows, pigs and birds are also included. The 11 chapters provide detailed and step-by-step protocols covering all...

Abstract

This chapter provides a general description of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). The principles of ICSI, quality and treatment of sperm used for ICSI, instrumentation, preparation of microtools, culture media used and ICSI procedure are discussed. Its application in transgenesis,...

Abstract

Sertoli cells play a pivotal role in spermatogenesis through their interactions with germ cells. To set up a strategy for treating male infertility caused by Sertoli cell dysfunction, we developed a Sertoli cell gene transfer system by using an adenovirus vector, which maintained long-term...
