Factores de crecimiento en el desarrollo folicular, embionario temprano e implantación. Implicaciones en la producción de embriones bovinos


Miguel Peña J

Se describe el papel de los factores de crecimiento en el desarrollo folicular, embrionario temprano e implantación y se destaca su importancia en la producción de embriones bovinos. Los factores de crecimiento cumplen importantes funciones en eventos claves de la actividad reproductiva. Aunque se conocen algunos mecanismos de acción y el efecto sinérgico con otras hormonas reproductivas, se está lejos de conocer totalmente su papel. Estudios previos tanto in vivo como in vitro señalan que podrían mejorar notablemente las tasas de fertilización, de clivaje e implantación.
