Investigates the effect of male and female serum (MS/FS) supplementation on the in vitro development of mouse embryos beyond the blastocyst stage. Effect of bovine serum albumin, MS/FS supplementation of in vitro development of the embryos; In vitro development until the blastocyst stage with the addition of MS or FS from the blastocyst to the outgrowth stage.

    Concerns of possible male biased sex ratios with IVF exist due to reports of faster preimplantation development for male relative to female embryos in a variety of mammals, including humans. This study reports the first direct test of the hypothesis that selection for faster preimplantation...
