Histone acetylation is one of the most important posttranslational modifications that contribute to transcriptional initiation and chromatin remodeling. In the present study, we aimed to investigate t...
The objective of this study was to examine the effect of alanine treatment during in vitro maturation (IVM) on oocyte maturation and embryonic development in pigs. To this end, we investigated the nu...
The outcome of in-vitro-maturation and in-vitro-fertilization of feline oocytes depends on the selection of high quality oocytes, and is often restricted to morphological criteria. The aim of this stu...
Oocyte quality, which is directly related to reprogramming competence, is a major important limiting factor in animal cloning efficiency. Compared with oocytes matured in vivo, in vitro matured oocyte...
Sirtuins have been implicated in the aging process, however, the functions of SIRT2 in post-maturation aging of oocytes are not fully understood. The purpose of the present investigation was to assess...
The aim of this study is to aspirate immature oocytes from antral follicles and mature the oocytes in vitro. These mature oocytes will serve for fertilization and the creation of embryos w...
Human oocyte cryopreservation is routinely used for fertility preservation of women who will be exposed to gonadotoxic effect of cancer treatment. After ovarian stimulation, matured oocyte...
Retrieval of immature oocytes from women with polycystic ovaries, their in-vitro maturation, fertilization and embryo transfer can prevent hormonal treatment that can lead to ovarian hyper...
The purpose of this grant is to evaluate the efficacy of sodium butyrate as a novel treatment for cognitive deficits in schizophrenia (SZ). The proposal consists of a small preliminary op...
In vitro maturation (IVM) is a technique for obtaining potentially fertilizable oocytes from immature oocytes. An oocyte must be mature both nuclearly and cytoplasmically in order to be co...
Female germ cells derived from OOGONIA and termed OOCYTES when they enter MEIOSIS. The primary oocytes begin meiosis but are arrested at the diplotene state until OVULATION at PUBERTY to give rise to haploid secondary oocytes or ova (OVUM).
Protein kinase that drives both the mitotic and meiotic cycles in all eukaryotic organisms. In meiosis it induces immature oocytes to undergo meiotic maturation. In mitosis it has a role in the G2/M phase transition. Once activated by CYCLINS; MPF directly phosphorylates some of the proteins involved in nuclear envelope breakdown, chromosome condensation, spindle assembly, and the degradation of cyclins. The catalytic subunit of MPF is PROTEIN P34CDC2.
Methods used to induce premature oocytes, that are maintained in tissue culture, to progress through developmental stages including to a stage that is competent to undergo FERTILIZATION.
Procedures to obtain viable OOCYTES from the host. Oocytes most often are collected by needle aspiration from OVARIAN FOLLICLES before OVULATION.
Transfer of preovulatory oocytes from donor to a suitable host. Oocytes are collected, fertilized in vitro, and transferred to a host that can be human or animal.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
