We demonstrated previously that ultra-rapid freezing of mouse oocytes with 3.5 M dimethylsulphoxide (DMSO) decreased cell numbers in day 5 in-vitro cultured blastocysts. In the present study we counted cell numbers of trophectoderm (TE) and inner cell mass (ICM) separately...

To compare our in-house method of embryo freezing with Cryotop vitrification in terms of immediate survival, subsequent cleavage and blastocyst formation, and cell numbers in blastocysts. Two-cell mouse embryos were randomly allocated into three groups: a non-frozen control group (group...

We studied the effect of the site of laser zona opening on the complete hatching of mouse blastocysts and the cell numbers of the completely hatched blastocysts. Mouse blastocysts were randomly allocated to the inner cell mass (ICM) group (zona...

Strontium has been successfully used to induce activation of mouse oocytes in nuclear transfer and other experiments, but the optimum treatment conditions have not been studied systematically. When cumulus-free oocytes were treated with 10mM SrCl(2) for 0.5-5h, activation rates (88.4+/-4.1...
