Bovine fetal fluid cells in vitro: fate and fetal sex prediction accuracy

In Vitro
A Bongso, P K BASRUR


The in vitro fate of bovine fetal fluid cells and the efficiency of fetal sex predication from cultures of these cells are studied using aspirates from live animals and pregnant uteri collected from the slaughterhouse. Over 70 percent of bovine amniotic fluid samples aspirated from pregnant uteri at the time of slaughter yielded cultures adequate for chromosome analysis whereas only 10 percent of allantoic fluid samples produced growth of cells satisfactory for chromosome analysis. Fetal sexing accuracy was 100 percent in all samples studied. Seven readily recognizable cell types were noted in cultures of fetal fluid cells obtained at various stages of gestation. In a majority of cases, the in vitro morphology of cells from both fetal cavities was similar to that observed in primary human amniotic fluid cell cultures.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
