Mechanisms Affecting Oocyte Competence in the Bovine Model: Effect of Follicular and Maternal Aging

2017/18-2019/20 • $96,000 • PI
The most critical period influencing the success or failure of pregnancy is the first 7 days of embryo development. More than 95% of oocytes (eggs) become fertilized after insemination (conception) but 50% of the embryos fail to develop. The reason for this high rate of failure is unclear, but...

Mechanisms affecting oocyte competence in the bovine model: effect of follicular and maternal aging

2010/11-2011/12 • $73,868 • PI
The most critical period influencing the success or failure of pregnancy is the first 7 days. More than 95% of oocytes (eggs) become fertilized after insemination (conception) but only 10-40% of them produce embryos. The reason for this high rate of attrition during early embryonic development...
