The obtainment of embryonic blastocytes indicates that it is possible to obtain pudu embryos through heterospecific cloning, even though the percentage of success is relatively low.
It is also possible that blastocytes were not activated and well-positioned before implantation, probably due to impaired muscular activity of the uterus (27).
Percentage of blastocytes was lower than that obtained with unsexed semen, also a higher variability was observed with sexed semen (0-25.
While not statistically significant, the percent of blastocysts and hatched blastocytes were 6.
