In vitro Production of Bovine Embryos - A Review
N. U. Rehman, M. Sarwar, H. A. Samad
Abstract
Over the years, the embryo transfer industry has grown from the simple collection & transfer of embryos into an advanced field of embryo biotechnology. Currently a large demand exists for bovine oocytes and early embryos in both research and commercial settings. Bovine embryos can now be produced in-vitro. Primary oocytes collected from antral follicles of abattoir - obtained ovaries can be induced to undergo the maturation process. In-vitor maturation system, however must ensure that the resulting oocyte is capable of undergoing normal fertilization and yields a zygote competent of developing to term after embryo transfer. Sperm preparation for IVF has improved with the use of heparine. The use of co-culture system has proved beneficial in circumventing the developmental block in IVM/IVF bovine embryos.
