Plasma anti-Mullerian hormone: an endocrine marker for in vitro embryo production from Bos taurus and Bos indicus donors.
Cellular and molecular characterization of the impact of laboratory setup on bovine in vitro embryo production. Theriogenology 77: 1767-1778.
Large-scale in vitro embryo production and pregnancy rates from Bos taurus, Bos indicus, and indicus-taurus dairy cows using sexed sperm.
Generation of ROS is an unavoidable result of oxidative reactions, but various preservative scavengers such as superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione remove radical species before they can cause significant damage in in vitro embryo production systems.
Low culture temperature during IVM could be useful to bovine in vitro embryo production programs.

In vivo oocyte recovery and in vitro embryo production
from bovine oocyte donors treated with progestagen, oestradiol and FSH.
Blastocyst rate of in vitro embryo production
in sheep is affected by season.
Also, the system of in vitro embryo production
technologies has been founded on the production of a number of offspring through the transplantation of in vitro-produced blastocysts (Kikuchi et al., 2002).
Ovaries collected from such prepubertal animals at slaughter represent a readily available source of oocytes for in vitro embryo production that would otherwise be discarded.
Despite the fact that initial reports of live births following in vitro oocyte maturation, in vitro fertilization and in vitro culture of resulting goat embryos occurred over 14 years ago (Keskintepe et al., 1994a), and common use of goat embryos for biotechnological applications (Baldassarre et al., 2004; Vajta and Gjerris, 2006), studies of in vitro embryo production in the goat are less prevalent than other food animal species (Cognie et al., 2003) and the efficiency of in vitro embryo production in general is far from ideal (Lonergan and Fair, 2008).
Application of in vitro embryo production using oocytes harvested from prepubertal animals coupled with embryo transfer holds potential for propagation of Boer goat genetics in rural regions of China to enhance rates of genetic progress.
