Use of sperm attributes to create a predictive model for in vitro embryo production

Abstract

In vitro production (IVP) of bovine embryos is an important technology of animal reproduction. This technology is applied on research and livestock, with economic highlights. Despite its applicability, the efficiency of IVP is considered limited when compared to the in vivo process. The effect of sperm in embryonic development has been described but it is not clear yet which attributes directly impact the blastocyst rate. The aim of this study is to identify which attributes contribute more to compose the predictive model of blastocyst production. Therefore, there will be a prospective analysis of a large number of semen samples, combining different bulls and batches (n = 50). For each sample will be collect flow cytometry evaluation (plasma membrane and acrosome integrity, mitochondrial membrane potential and chromatin integrity) and computerized motility (motility parameters and sperm subpopulations). The same samples will be used for in vitro embryos production, which will be evaluate by cleavage and blastocyst rates, and differential cell counts to build the predictive model of in vitro embryo production.
