At 20 days of gestation, there were several proteins in the ULF adjacent to viable embryos, which were absent in the correspondent sites of non-viable conceptuses. Those molecules were represented by several protein complexes (FIG.
Again, at 28 and 35 days of gestation, there were proteins in the ULF adjacent to viable embryos, which were lacking in the correspondent sites of non-viable conceptuses. They corresponded to compounds of MW ~32 y 30 kDa (Ip ~3.7-5.15 and ~3.84-5.03, respectively).
We hypothesize that determination of both male sex and pathology of the progeny by PrOO will initially cause a positive male-biased dose response, which, after having reached a threshold, will be followed by a negative one due to disproportional loss of male-specific conceptuses and sublethal X-linked genes (21).
The antiestrogenic action of dioxin provokes periovulatory hormone variation and PrOO and leads to disproportionate rates of male-biased pathologic conceptuses outside the fertile window of the menstrual cycle.
Pregnancy was confirmed by the presence of apparently normal filamentous conceptuses in uterine flushings on D12 and D15 and presence of embryos and placenta in the later days of pregnancy.
The intricate connections between either equal proportions of each sex and optimal conceptions at the core of the fertile window of the menstrual cycle, or between disproportionate rates of male-biased and pathologic conceptuses outside of this window are due to periovulatory hormone variation, which simultaneously modulates cervical liquefaction and oocyte maturation.
Pregnancy was confirmed by the presence of apparently normal conceptuses with filamentous morphology in uterine flushings.
Levels of OCT4 and CDX2 as well as CREBBP, JUN, ETS2 and IFNT mRNAs in peri-implantation conceptuses were examined by PCR using specific primers (Table 1).
Camels ovulate from the right and left ovaries with equal frequency; however, almost 100% of the conceptuses develop in the left uterine horn.
Therefore, this study was to determine i) regulation of the uterine endometrial S100G expression by estrogen and IL1B during the implantation period; ii) expression of S100G in conceptuses during early pregnancy; and iii) expression of S100G in the uterine endometrium from gilts with SCNT-derived conceptuses compared to that from gilts with conceptuses derived from natural mating on day (D) 12 of pregnancy.
Total RNA was extracted from endometrial tissues and conceptuses using TRIzol reagent (Invitrogen Life Technology, Carlsbad, CA) according to manufacturer's recommendations.
For RNA preparation, only the conceptuses having identical morphology were pooled and stored in 5 [micro]l of diethyl pyrocarbonate-treated phosphatebuffered saline at -80[degrees]C until further use.
