Nuclear Transfer in the Equine Species Grant uri icon



  • High rate of embryonic loss, particularly aged mares, is a primary cause of low reproductive performance in horses. To effectively use nuclear transfer as a tool, the efficiency of the technology will be improved by producing foals from in vivo and in vitro matured nuclear-transferred equine oocytes and by differentiating between DNA versus cytoplasm as a root cause of embryonic death in aged mares.
