    • Cyclic AMP affects oocyte maturation and embryo development in prepubertal and adult cattle 

      Bernal Ulloa, Sandra Milena; Heinzmann, Júlia; Herrmann, Doris; Hadeler, Klaus Gerd; Aldag, Patrick; Winkler, Sylke; Pache, Dorit; Baulain, Ulrich (2016)
      High cAMP levels during in vitro maturation (IVM) have been related to improved blastocyst yields. Here, we employed the cAMP/cGMP modulators, forskolin, IBMX, and cilostamide, during IVM to unravel the role of high cAMP ...
    • Oocyte pre-IVM with caffeine improves bovine embryo survival after vitrification 

      Bernal Ulloa, Sandra Milena; Lucas Hahn, Andrea; Herrmann, Doris; Hadeler, Klaus; Aldag, Patrick (2016)
      Cryopreservation of in vitro produced bovine embryos is associated with significantly reduced survival rates, mainly due to insufficient quality of the embryos. Caffeine supplementation during IVM has been used to delay ...
