Abstract Notch signaling pathway plays an important regulatory role in the development of mammalian follicles. This study aimed to explore the effect of Notch2 on the function of bovine follicles luteinized granulosa cells (LGCs). We detected that the coding sequence (CDS) of bovine Notch2 gene is 7416 bp, encoding 2471 amino acids (AA). The homology of Notch2 AA sequence between bovine and other species is 86.04%–98.75%, indicating high conservatism. Immunohistochemistry found that Notch2 recep...

Abstract Surfactant treatment is a manner to reduce alveolar superficial tension and increase pulmonary compliance in premature neonates. Thus, we aimed to analyze the effect of exogenous surfactant treatment in combination with manual ventilation for preterm lambs. We used 15 ewes and their lambs (n = 16), prematurely born at 135 days. At birth, lambs were submitted to orotracheal intubation attached to a handheld resuscitation device and randomly allocated to: Control Group (n = 5; only manual...

Abstract Since buffaloes are a seasonal, polyestrous species, optimizing reproduction during the non-breeding season is a key factor in increasing the reproductive and productive efficiency of herds. Ovum pick-up associated with in vitro embryo production and embryo cryopreservation is an alternative to reduce seasonal impacts. We studied the effects of seasonality in buffalo oocyte donors and embryo recipients during the favorable and non-favorable breeding seasons. Donors were evaluated for oo...
Abstract The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of exposure to different colors of light during egg incubation on the reproductive parameters of male and female Japanese quails. A total of 1776 eggs were incubated under four lighting conditions for 24 h a day during the entire incubation period: white LEDs, green LEDs, red LEDs and darkness (control). The experimental design was a randomized block (incubation time) with four treatments of six replicates of two cages each. After h...

Abstract Models using in vitro produced buffalo embryos and in vitro cultured uterine epithelial cells (UECs) may be useful in understanding the intricacies of embryo-uterine cross talk. In the present study, buffalo UECs were obtained from slaughterhouse derived non-gravid uterus. UECs monolayer was treated with steroids (10pg/ml estradiol for 24h and 3.14 ng/ml progesterone for another 5 days). In vitro produced buffalo blastocysts were co-cultured over steroid treated UECs monolayer and at 72...

The objective was to compare effects of immunological, chemical and surgical castrations on testicular characteristics, scrotal surface temperatures, sperm quality, and serum testosterone concentrations in Bos indicus bulls. Eighty Nelore bulls (∼20 mo) were grazed on pasture, fed a supplement and slaughtered at ∼480 kg. Bulls were allocated into four groups (n = 20/group). The control group (CON) was non-castrated and there were three castration methods: immune (IMM - Bopriva®), injected on D-3...

Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, has a pivotal role in energy metabolism, cellular signaling cascades regulating gene expression, and apoptosis. However, the effect of Niacin on porcine early embryo developmental competence remains to be elucidated. The present study aimed to assess the effects of Niacin treatment during in vitro maturation (IVM) on the nuclear maturation of porcine oocytes and subsequent development of in vitro embryos. In addition, the expression profiles of selected genes re...

Abstract During an ovulatory follicular wave in the monovulatory species of heifers, mares, and women, the two largest follicles deviate in diameter at the end of a common follicle growth phase. The largest follicle before deviation becomes the future ovulatory follicle in most ovulatory waves. In 10 – 30% of the ovulatory waves, the destiny of the two follicles switches just before or at deviation so that the second-largest follicle becomes the future ovulatory follicle, and the largest follicl...

Abstract Apparently healthy mares with conception failure or embryonic loss may have subclinical endometritis (SE). Our objective was to document evidence of systemic immune responses against SE in mares. In apparently healthy (control) mares as well as those with chronic endometritis (ChE) or subacute suppurative endometritis (SSE), both considered classes of SE, serum concentrations of cytokines (IL-1β, IL-6, IL-10 and TNF-α), chemokines (IL-8), acute phase protein (SAA), and plasma concentrat...

Although prostaglandins are important in the ovulation process, a precise role for prostaglandin F2α (PGF) has not been elucidated. This study aimed to evaluate the regulation of PGF receptor mRNA (PTGFR) in granulosa cells and the local effect of PGF on ovulation and luteinization. In Experiment 1, using samples collected in vivo before (Day 2), during (Day 3) and after (Day 4) follicular deviation, expression of PTGFR in bovine granulosa cells was more abundant in the dominant follicle after d...
