Nano-micelle Curcumin; A Hazardous and/or Boosting Agent? Relation with Oocyte In-vitro Maturation and Pre-implantation Embryo Development in Rats
The present study was done to uncover the possible beneficial and/or detrimental effect(s) of nano-micelle curcumin (NMC) on oocyte in-vitro maturation and pre-implantation embryo development. Forty-eight mature female Wistar rats were assigned to control, 7.5, 15, and 30 mg/kg-1 NMC-receiving (orally, for 48 days) groups. To assess the cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs), the ovaries were stimulated by administrating (i.p.) a 25 IU of the pregnant mare's serum gonadotropin (PMSG) hormone. Following 48-h, 15 IU of hCG was injected (i.p.), and the COCs were taken after 16-18-h. To analyze the pre-implantation embryo development ratio, the sperms were collected from clinically healthy male Wistar rats, and 3.0-3.6 × 106 per mL was added into the fertilization drop. The animals in 7.5 mg/kg-1 NMC-receiving group exhibited a higher oocyte number versus control and other NMC-receiving groups. The NMC, in a dose-dependent manner, decreased the Zygote, 2-cell, blastocyst percentages, as well as hatched embryos, compared to the control group (P < 0.05). The 15 and 30 mg/kg-1 NMC-receiving groups represented a remarkable enhancement in type I arrest. Meanwhile, a significant (P < 0.05) reduction was revealed in type III embryo arrest in the same groups. The NMC, at 7.5 mg/kg-1 potentially enhances the oocyte number, while it fairly reduces the pre-implantation embryo development, even when it is administrated in dose levels of 7.5 mg/kg-1 and/or higher. Although more studies are needed, the NMC could be considered as a suppressor of fertility potential, when consumed chronically even in low doses.
P-214: The Rate of In Vitro Oocyte Maturation,Fertilization and Embryo Development in Presence of Melatonin in Mice
Background: It is important to protect oocytes and embryos from oxidative stress in the culture medium. Melatonin has been shown to be a direct free radical scavenger. Therefore, effect of melatonin during in vitro oocyte maturation (IVM), fertilization and embryo development of mouse oocytes was evaluated. Materials and Methods: Oocytes from supper-ovulated mouse were divided to two groups: cu...متن کامل
Oocyte maturation and embryo development are controlled by intra-ovarian factors such as steroid hormones. Progesterone (P4) exists in the follicular fluid that contributes to normal mammalian ovarian function and has several critical functions during embryo development and implantation, including endometrial receptivity, embryonic survival during gestation and transformation of the endometrial...متن کامل
An understanding of oocyte and embryo metabolism is critical to understanding and developing in vitro culture systems. In the last 60-70 years there has been a constant evolution in the way metabolism studies have been conducted. This includes a change from studying the metabolism of the oocyte alone vs. as a whole cumulus oocyte complex. The study of in vivo environments has lead to the creati...متن کامل
In Vitro Maturation (IVM) is a method that immature oocytes in antral follicles are extracted and matured in laboratry conditions. This review has attempted to provide the current knowledge and recent findings in in vitro maturation of oocytes and highlights the most important factors involved in this process. The review is based on literature reports and the author’s experience. In IVM cycles,...متن کامل
P-23: Effect of Melatonin on In vitro Maturation, Fertilization and Resulted Embryo Development in Mouse
Background: Melatonin has been recognised as effective reactive oxygen species (ROS) scavenger. antioxident melatonin effects has been expressed in management of cancer, alzheimer, diabet diseases. This study designed to determine the effect of melatonin on in vitro oocytes maturation and fertilization and cleavage and blastocyst development rate of mouse. Materials and Methods: Cumulus - oocyt...متن کامل
