Pregnancy-Associated Glycoprotein (PAG) Profile of Holstein-Friesian Cows as Compared to Dual-Purpose and Beef Cows
Pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (PAGs) are produced by mono-and binucleate trophoblast cells in the ruminant placenta. PAG appears in maternal blood and, from approximately 4 weeks after fertilization onward, may serve ...
Open pulled straw vitrification of goat embryos at various stages of development
This investigation addresses the question whether it is possible to apply the open pulled straw (OPS) vitrification method, found to be effective for cryopreserving caprine (Capra aegagrus hircus) blastocysts, to other ...
Short communication: a note on the correction for the effect of freezing on the outcome of pregnancy-associated glycoprotein measurement in blood and serum of cows
(American Dairy Science Association, 2013)
Early pregnancy detection is a measure of considerable economic relevance for dairy cattle breeders, and analysis of pregnancy-associated glycoprotein (PAG) values in blood is one of the methods implemented in practice. ...
Carcass Characteristics and Meat Quality of Swamp Buffaloes (Bubalus bubalis) Fattened at Different Feeding Intensities
Twenty-four male 1-year old swamp buffaloes (Bubalus bubalis) were randomly allocated to 4 groups. One group grazed on guinea grass (GG) and another on guinea grass and the legume Stylosanthes guianensis (GL). The other ...
One-step dilution of open-pulled-straw (OPS)-vitrified mouse blastocysts in sucrose-free medium
Embryos vitrified by the open-pulled-straw (OPS) method are only briefly exposed to cryoprotectants and not fully equilibrated with the cryoprotectant. That being the case, conceivably the post-thawing de- and rehydration ...
In vitro and in vivo survival of mouse blastocysts after repeated vitrification with the open pulled straw (OPS) method
This study addresses the in vitro and in vivo survival of mouse embryos repeatedly vitrified by the OPS-technique of Vajta et al. (24). Of 225 vitrified blastocysts, after warming one third was cultured in vitro, the other ...
