Described in the present paper is a cytogenetic study of bovine oocytes matured in vitro. The cumulus-oocyte complexes (COC), punctured from ovaries recovered in a local slaughterhouse, were classified into 3 groups according to follicular diameter 1 to 4mm, 5 to 8mm and 9 to 13 mm. Metaphases available for observation were classified as metaphase I, haploid and diploid metaphase II. High levels of haploid metaphases II (90.6, 86.9 and 94.4 %) among the 3 groups of follicular sizes indicated successful meiotic resumption during in vitro maturation and suggested that cytoplasmic maturation may be responsible for low developmental rate after IVM, IVF and in vitro development (IVD).

Pregnancy in cattle and sheep can be diagnosed by the presence of placentally-derived antigens (pregnancy-associated glycoproteins or PAG-1) in maternal serum soon after implantation begins at about Day 20 following conception. Molecular cloning of their cDNA has revealed that PAG-1 belong to the aspartic proteinase gene family and have about 50% amino acid sequence identity to pepsin. However, critical amino acid substitutions at the active site regions suggest that both bovine and ovine PAG-1 are enzymatically inactive. PAG-1 expression has been shown by in situ hybridization and immunocytochemistry to be localized to the trophoblast binucleate cells, which invade maternal uterine endometrium during implantation. The glycoproteins are concentrated in dense cytoplasmic granules that are discharged after the binucleate cells have migrated to the maternal side of the placental barrier. We suggest, therefore, that the PAG-1 might have an endocrine function either as carriers of other bioactive peptides or by acting as hormones themselves. Recently screening of placental libraries with nucleic acid probes has identified additional cDNA that are very abundant and code for polypeptides (PAG-2 and PAG-3) related to, but antigenically and structurally distinct from PAG-1 described above. These molecules have sequences of amino acids at their catalytic centers that are consistent with their being potentially functional proteinases but their role during pregnancy, like that of PAG-1, is unclear.

The aggregation behavior of omega- and alpha,omega-metal sulfonato polystyrene in toluene has been investigated by static and dynamic light scattering. Monofunctional chains reversibly associate into small reverse micelles. Lithium-based ionic aggregates contain an average of 12 ion pairs, which corresponds to a preferential structure for the ionic cores. When the molecular weight of the chains is increased, polymer-solvent interactions progressively distort the ionic aggregates, and above a critical molecular weight, estimated to be 50000 in toluene, the multiplets collapse into smaller aggregates of an average of 3 ion pairs. Traces of polar solvents do not strongly affect the aggregation number, but do weaken the dipole-dipole interactions. Structure of the ionic cores strongly depends on the nature of the ion pairs, which suggests that this structural feature is a key parameter in the control of the structure-property relationships in ionomers. The aggregation behavior of the difunctional chains is complex, due to the occurrence of a closed association mechanism for the individual multiplets and an open association of reverse micelles into larger aggregates.

Partitioning among the major components of the stratospheric odd chlorine family inside and outside of the remanent Arctic vortex has been studied on the basis of infrared solar occultation measurements obtained by the atmospheric trace molecule spectroscopy (ATMOS) Fourier transform spectrometer during the ATLAS 2 shuttle mission (April 8-17, 1993). Profiles of hydrogen chloride (HCl) and simultaneous profiles of chlorine nitrate (ClONO2) and CFC-12 (CCl2F2) are reported for examples of in-vortex and out-of-vortex conditions. Increased ClONO2 volume-mixing ratios (VMRs) are measured in the vortex below 20 mbar (similar to 25 km altitude) with a peak ClONO2 VMR of 2.05 +/- 0.45 ppbv (10(-9) per volume) at 56 mbar (similar to 19 km altitude). The reported error correspond to la uncertainties. Simultaneous CCl2F2 and N2O measurements, combined with published empirical relations, indicate that only 0.34 +/- 0.15 ppbv, about 10% of total chlorine, was bound in organic species at the ClONO2 VMR peak in the vortex. A colocated vortex profile of HCl, referenced to simultaneous N2O VMR measurements, has been used to derive a HCl mixing ratio of 1.21 +/- 0.12 ppbv corresponding to the ClONO2 VMR peak. The internal consistency of the ATMOS measurements is demonstrated by the agreement between the total chlorine mixing ratio of 3.60 +/- 0.72 ppbv derived at the ClONO2 VMR peak in the vortex and HCl measurements of 3.37 +/- 0.37 and 3.76 +/- 0.41 ppbv at 0.56 mbar, where HCl is the only significant chlorine-bearing molecule. Outside the vortex the mixing ratio of HCl exceeds the mixing ratio of ClONO2 throughout the stratosphere. [less ▲]

Blends of isotactic polylactides of opposite configurations lead to the formation of stereocomplexes, provided the enantiomeric excess of the two homopolymers in contact is high enough. In this study, the stereocomplex formation between a poly(L-lactide) (100L) having an enantiomeric excess of 100% and a poly(D-lactide) having an enantiomeric excess of 80% (80D) has been investigated using differential scanning calorimetry and optical microscopy. These results have been compared to those obtained between two polylactides having both an enantiomeric excess of 100% (100L/100D blend). The melting temperatures of blends 100L/100D and 100L/80D are 230 and 208 degrees C, respectively. In both cases, the stereocomplex formation is preferred to the homopolymer crystallization and the stereocomplex controls the morphology of the blends over a wide range of concentrations. However, this control is more rigorous when the D component is 100% isotactic. This difference leads to a more complete crystallization of homopolymer 100L and to a greater influence of crystallization conditions in 100L/80D blends in comparison with 100L/100D blends. An epitaxial crystallization between the homopolymer 100L and the stereocomplex 100L/80D has also been observed at certain compositions. [less ▲]

Biphasic Cs and Ba carboxylated polystyrene ionomers were blended with chemically identical mono- and bifunctional oligomers whose chain lengths are significantly greater than the average segmental length between ionic groups in the ionomer. The ionomers were chosen to have two ion contents such that, in one case, the matrix phase is dominant and, in the other, the cluster phase is dominant. From dynamic mechanical thermal analysis, it was observed that the biphasic morphology of the ionomers is preserved in all blends (containing up to 60 wt % oligomer). The monofunctional oligomers tend to have a mild plasticizing action on the two phases. In the matrix-dominated ionomer, the bifunctional oligomer has an antiplasticization effect at lower oligomer contents; this is attributed to a greater dispersion of ionic aggregates in the matrix phase, accompanied by pinning of the oligomer extremities in multiplets, which prevents plasticizing action. In the cluster-dominated ionomer, the oligomer forms a separate phase, which is related to insufficiently large ion-poor styrene regions in the ionomer to accommodate the long nonionic portion of the oligomer chains.
