Abstract

Recently, the conception rates after artificial insemination have been pointed out to decline continuously. To overcome this problem, the control of frozen and thawed sperm quality is required. However, the mechanism of bovine sperm functional regulation is still largely unknown. In mammals, the...

Abstract

Background: Spermatozoa have a remarkable epigenome in line with their degree of specialization, their unique nature and different requirements for successful fertilization. Accordingly, perturbations in the establishment of DNA methylation patterns during male germ cell differentiation have been...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) is an assisted reproductive technique that is implemented successfully in humans as a fertility treatment, performed extensively for commercial breeding of livestock, and is also successful in laboratory rodents. AI in the mouse may be especially useful for breeding of...

Abstract

For artificial insemination (AI) to be successful, it is essential that sperm delivery be perfectly timed relative to ovulation, as sperm lifespan is limited due to oxidative metabolism induced by capacitation. Extending the window of sperm capacitation could therefore increase sperm lifespan,...

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

Xenografting of immature testicular tissue combined with cryopreservation can preserve and use genetic information of prepubertal animals. For establishment of this new approach, it is essential to clarify whether offspring derived from sperm grown in host mice harboring cryopreserved xenografts...

Abstract

Widespread adoption of artificial insemination as a breeding practice has allowed for expanded use of desirable genetics from specific sires and greatly influenced production traits in dairy cattle populations worldwide. In fact, the average dairy cow in the US in 2009 produced 4.5 times more milk...

Breeding of (outbred) selective lines of laboratory mouse was initiated in Warsaw University of Life Sciences about 40 years ago. It bred Heavy (C) and Light (L) mice selected opposite for body weight at weaning (21st day of life), S mice line selected for higher testes weight, and control (K) mice ...

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; ...
