Selection of bovine oocytes by brilliant cresyl blue staining: effect on meiosis progression, organelle distribution and embryo development.
Selection of oocytes for in vitro maturation by brilliant cresyl blue staining: A study using the mouse model.
4) (a) G6PDH, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase; PA, parthenogenetically activated; SE, standard error; BCB, brilliant cresyl blue.
A brilliant cresyl blue (BCB) staining test can show different intracellular activity of G6PDH in oocytes because the G6PDH enzyme converts BCB from blue to a colorless state.
Selection of developmentally competent oocytes through brilliant cresyl blue stain enhances blastocyst development rate after bovine nuclear transfer.
