  1. ncbi Quality control of embryo development
    Anna Ajduk
    Department of Embryology, University of Warsaw, Miecznikowa 1, 02 096 Warsaw, Poland
    Mol Aspects Med 34:903-18. 2013
    ..We also present novel methods for selecting healthy embryos based on most recent advanced time-lapse imaging techniques, which show great promise and are likely to lead to increased in vitro fertilization efficiency. ..
  2. ncbi Sperm-derived activating ability does not persist in mouse oocytes inseminated during in vitro maturation
    Anna Ajduk
    Department of Embryology, Institute of Zoology, Warsaw University, Miecznikowa 1, 02 096 Warsaw, Poland
    Mol Reprod Dev 68:240-9. 2004
    ..MII oocytes were fused with parthenogenotes inseminated by ICSI and all hybrids underwent activation. This result indicated that the ability to induce activation in hybrid, was sperm-derived...
  3. ncbi Fertilization differently affects the levels of cyclin B1 and M-phase promoting factor activity in maturing and metaphase II mouse oocytes
    Anna Ajduk
    Department of Embryology, Institute of Zoology, University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland
    Reproduction 136:741-52. 2008
    ..This idea is supported by the finding that oocytes fused with thymocytes rather than spermatozoa also showed a transient decrease in MPF activity...
  4. ncbi Cytoplasmic maturation of mammalian oocytes: development of a mechanism responsible for sperm-induced Ca2+ oscillations
    Anna Ajduk
    Department of Embryology, Institute of Zoology, University of Warsaw, ul Miecznikowa 1, 02 096 Warsaw, Poland
    Reprod Biol 8:3-22. 2008
    ..The aim of this review is to present the state of current knowledge about these processes...

    Karolina Archacka
    Department of Cytology, Institute of Zoology, Faculty of Biology, University of Warsaw, Poland
    Int J Dev Biol 52:903-12. 2008
    ..However, no significant differences between these oocytes were found at the level of mRNA encoding IP(3) receptors which participate in calcium release during oocyte fertilization...

    Agnieszka Jedrusik
    Department of Embryology, Institute of Zoology, University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland
    BMC Dev Biol 7:72. 2007
    ..Here we examine how the development of this ability is perturbed when a single spermatozoon is introduced into the oocyte prematurely, i.e. during oocyte maturation...
  7. ncbi The basal position of nuclei is one pre-requisite for asymmetric cell divisions in the early mouse embryo
    Anna Ajduk
    The Wellcome Trust Cancer Research UK Gurdon Institute, University of Cambridge, Tennis Court Road, Cambridge CB2 1QN, UK Department of Embryology, Faculty of Biology, University of Warsaw, Miecznikowa 1, 02 096 Warsaw, Poland
    Dev Biol 392:133-40. 2014
    ..These results suggest a model in which the mutual interdependence of Cdx2 and cell polarity affects the cytoskeleton-dependent positioning of nuclei and, in consequence, the plane of cell division in the early mouse embryo. ..
  8. ncbi Genomic DNA damage in mouse transgenesis
    Yasuhiro Yamauchi
    Institute for Biogenesis Research, University of Hawaii Medical School, Honolulu, Hawaii 96822, USA
    Biol Reprod 77:803-12. 2007
    ..The present study demonstrates that DNA damage occurs after both the microinjection of pronuclei and ICSI-mediated transgenesis, albeit through different mechanisms...
