Development is a leading primary research journal covering the field of developmental biology. We established a rat PCOS model and demonstrated that appropriate concentrations of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) promoted oocyte maturation and embryonic development in this model. This review describes the involvement of the sodium pump Na+/K+-ATPase in various aspects of animal reproduction, including critical roles in embryonic development and specific sperm functions. Migration : The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development acknowledges the positive contribution of migrants to development, both in origin and destination countries. Development Studies is a dynamic, interdisciplinary field concerned with social and economic change and the implications – in policy and practice – of such change. Here we show that mating of immunised male mice with unimmunised females significantly altered gestation conditions and in utero embryo development resulting in increased embryonic bodyweight. The reproductive performance of offspring in adulthood is determined during fetal and neonatal development.
Using pools of only 30 embryos, we identified miRNAs that regulate target genes and metabolic pathways that had not been associated with early embryogenesis before, and are potential biomarkers of developmental competence. Removal of protein from culture medium improves analytical reliability, although bovine embryo development in vitro could be affected. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of AMH, with and without FSH, on the in vitro development of isolated caprine follicles. Repeated exposures to supraphysiological levels of hormones raise concerns about the safety of this procedure on the general health of the individual, gamete quality and impact on embryonic development. These results indicate that in vitro follicle culture is a promising method to rescue follicle development after the onset of POI in this model.
The OECD Development Assistance Committee produces accurate, reliable and transparent development finance statistics The ongoing modernisation of the DAC statistical system contributes to broader global efforts to monitor international resource mobilisation for implementing the Agenda 2030.
The effect of birth type (single, twin, triplet) and co-twin sex on in vitro developmental competence of oocytes from 6 to 8-week old lambs significantly increased blastocyst development rates for lambs born with a female co-twin compared with a male co-twin.
SOAS, with its renown expertise in regional Studies and an emphasis on looking beyond the disciplinary boundaries of standard economic approaches, provides the ideal research environment to tackle questions of regional development in an interdisciplinary and empirically sound manner.
