Porcine follicle stimulating hormone (pFSH) and porcine luteinizing hormone (pLH), are widely used to induce superovulation in cows. An advantage of this treatment is that the LH:FSH ratio can be varied to optimize the growth of the ovarian follicles. However, due to the relatively short half-life of FSH, the superovulatory treatment requires numerous injections. A performant radioimmunoassay system (sensitivity=0.2 ng/ml plasma) was used to determine plasma pFSH levels in cows that were superovulated with 2 daily injections of 4 Armour Units (A.U.) of pFSH for 4 d. From plasma profiles, the half-life and the disappearance of pFSH were estimated at 5 h and at 10 to 12 h, respectively, confirming the necessity of using two daily injections. [less ▲]

The effects of temperature and exposure time to vitrification solutions on In vitro survival of mouse blastocysts were investigated. Blastocysts were first exposed for 10 min to vitrification Solution 1 (VS1) containing 10% glycerol-20% 1,2 propanediol in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), then to vitrification Solution 2 (VS2) with 25 % glycerol-25% 1,2 propanediol for various periods either at room temperature or at 4 degrees C. At room temperature survival dropped quickly, while at 4 degrees C an increase in survival was observed. It is concluded that the viability of mouse blastocyts after vitrification is dependent on the temperature and duration of equilibration in vitrification solutions. [less ▲]

Cow embryos between day 6.5 and 9 were frozen in 1.5M DMSO in PBS at 2 degrees C/min from seeding to -25 degrees C before being plunged into liquid nitrogen directly or after 10 min at -25 degrees C. Cooling rate from 20 degrees C to -5 degrees C was 9 degrees C/min. Seeding was induced automatically at -5 degrees C by injection of liquid nitrogen vapour. Embryos were subsequently thawed by direct transfer to water at 20 degrees C (group I) or at 37 degrees C (group II). Survival was assessed by culture in vitro and by transfer. In group I, 35.7% were degenerated after thawing (compared to 35.4% in group II). Survival rate after culture in vitro for 24h was not significantly different (48.3% vs 42.8%) and hatching rate after 96h culture was quite similar (33.3% vs 34.4%). In group II, four pregnancies were obtained from 10 embryos transferred. Time at -25 degrees C did not improve the results. Automatic seeding did not impair survival. These results show that the quality of the embryo is the determinant factor for survival after freezing and that the plastic straw is the most suitable vessel for freezing, storage and transfer of embryos.

Highly specific antisera were obtained from rabbits immunized with a purified preparation of Bovine Placental Somatomammotropin leading to the development of a sensitive radioimmunoassay. Teh values in cotyledons extracts and foetal serum given by this methos are in agreement with those determined by radioreceptor assay using rabbit membranous receptors. Placental somatomammotrophic hormone is always present in pregnant cow sera from day 110 after fertilization but at low concentration (<=2 ng/ml) [less ▲]

Isolation from bovine cotyledon extracts of an hormone with somatotrophic and mammotrophic activity was performed using this hormone during the successive steps of purification, its prolactinic and somatotrophic activity was determined by radioreceptor assay. The purified hormone shows a prolactinic activity similar to that of PRL-NIH-B4 standard and a somatotrophic activity three times that of GH-NIH-B18 standard. [less ▲]

Ninety four cow embryos recovered on day 7-8 after onset of oestrus were frozen by the "Two Step" freezing procedure: 49 in pyrex glass ampules and 45 in .25 ml French semen straws. The overall survival rate was 33.7% (36.2% for embryos frozen in glass ampules; 31.1% for embryos frozen in plastic straws). 45.2% of transferred embryos resulted in pregnancies (35.7% after freezing in glass ampules v.s 52.9% after freezing in plastic straws).
