Sample text

At least one report indicates that methanol can be used to successfully cryopreserve equine embryos and has similar efficiency to glycerol [46]. for use as an “antifreeze” cryoprotectant. 6 mol/l ethylene glycol had no apparent adverse effects on development [47,48]. Mouse epididymal sperm is extremely permeable to ethylene glycol [52], which appears to utilize aquaporin 3 channels for cell entry [34]. There are numerous protocols throughout the literature utilizing ethylene glycol as a cryoprotectant additive for sperm, oocytes, and embryos from a variety of species.

This speculation is supported by the finding that the exogenous expression of aquaporin 3 in MII oocytes did not increase permeability to water at all in the presence of ethylene glycol [28]. In addition, the suppression of aquaporin 3 expression in morulae did not affect permeability to water [28]. 2d). Dimethyl sulfoxide and acetamide We have shown that the permeating properties of DMSO are similar to those of acetamide in mouse oocytes/embryos [7]. The permeability to water in the presence of DMSO is also similar to that in the presence of acetamide [28].
