- ... Culture conditions can affect cleavage, zygotic genome activation, embryonic development, and blastocyst quality. Epidermal growth factor (EGF) has important autocrine and/or paracrine effects during early embryonic development. However, few studies of the effect of EGF on yak embryos have been reported. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of exogenous EGF on yak embryonic developme ...
