Mother birds increase progesterone to hatch females

...us, we think that how much progesterone the female follicle produces during the first meiosis is the mechanism in birds that manipulates the sex ratio of offspring," says Adkins-Regan. "Researchers think that birds such as the Seychelles warbler may bias the sex of their offspring when, for example, their te...

Human embryonic stem cells have the potential to develop into eggs and sperm in the laboratory

...e cultured cells the environment of the developing follicle for egg development or the tissue of the testis for sperm. We want to test whether HESCs can differentiate to cells that produce the hormones for sperm and egg development and isolate these as well. What is extraordinary is that the embryoid bodies s...

New brain hormone puts brakes on reproduction

...the hormones gonadotropin, luteinizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone. These hormones are dumped into the bloodstream and make their way to the gonads, where in males they stimulate production of testosterone and the maturation of sperm. In females, the hormones stimulate production of estradiol, a...

Component in soy products causes reproductive problems in laboratory mice

...aper. "Since there are many egg cells in the same follicle instead of just one, the resources from the surrounding cells are spread too thin and they can't get the support they need to become a mature functioning egg cell." "You need at least one good healthy single oocyte that is ovulated and fertilized by...

Study finds how organs monitor themselves during early development

...rows," she says. In the human ovary for example, a follicle ripens every month. Without the somatic cells of the ovary, the egg on its own would not ripen. The eggs need this environment for their development, she says. In every organism, both egg and sperm cells cannot develop unless they are embedded in ...

Study finds that a woman's chances of having twins can be modified by diet

...k. IGF increases the sensitivity of the ovaries to follicle stimulating hormone, thereby increasing ovulation. Some studies also suggest that IGF may help embryos survive in the early stages of development. The concentration of IGF in the blood is about 13 percent lower in vegan women than in women who consum...

Stem cells found in adult hair follicles may provide alternative to embryonic stem cells

...cle cells. The cells can be isolated from the hair follicle bulge as multipotent stem cells, and then expanded in culture into millions of cells without losing stem cell markers. "We grafted the cells into mice that have spinal cord injuries and were encouraged by the results. The cells survived and integr...

Robotic whiskers can sense three-dimensional environment
