Abstract

Experiments were conducted to develop an intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) protocol to produce goat embryos from in vitro matured heterogeneous oocytes. Two different protocols ('Protocol 1' or P-1 and 'Protocol 2′ or P-2) were formulated and tested to develop a suitable one. Cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs) were obtained either by LOPU (P-1) or by ovariectomy and slicing (P-2). Recovered COCs were cultured in a microdrop (50 μL) of HEPES-buffered in vitro maturation (IVM) medium with 10% oestrus goat serum (OGS) (P-1) or IVM medium without HEPES with 15% OGS (P-2) in presence of CO2(5%) at 38.5°C either for 24 h (P-1) or 27 h (P-2). After IVM, COCs were denuded to select a mature oocyte (Mil) and held in the incubator in presence of CO2 (5%) until ICSI. Motile sperm were selected from frozen-thawed buck semen by swim-up either in mDM (P-1) or mSOF (P-2) medium. A motile sperm was immobilized and injected, head-first, into the ooplasm of a MII oocyte. Sham injections were also performed as control. Injected oocytes were cultured in mSOF medium either with 10% (P-1) or 20% (P-2) goat serum in presence of CO2 (5%) at 38.5°C A significantly higher (p<0.01) number of COCs was recovered with P-2 (17.5 COCs/donor) than P-1 (6.7 COCs/donor). However, the quality of the COCs was better with P-1 than P-2. A higher proportion of COCs were matured with P-2 (69.3%) than P-1 (55.5%), which was not statistically significant. A fertilization rate of 28.6% was obtained in P-1 without any cleavage. Fertilization rate (54.1 %) was significantly higher (p<0.05) in P-2 with a cleavage rate of 18.2% and few morula-stage embryos were obtained (2.9%). In conclusion, better fertilization and embryo development rates were obtained with P-2 than P-1. Morula-stage embryos were obtained using ICSI technique from in vitro matured heterogeneous goat oocytes without any artificial activation and first reported in Malaysia. © 2007 Asian Network for Scientific Information.
