Abstract

Currently, relatively little is known regarding the protein production of mammalian embryos. Unlike the genome, the proteome itself is dynamic reflecting both internal and external environmental stimuli. Until now the lack of sensitivity has remained a stumbling block for the global introduction of proteomics into the field of mammalian embryology. However, new developments in mass spectrometry have been revolutionary, utilizing protein profiling and peptide sequencing to elucidate underlying biological processes. The sensitivity of these platforms have allowed for the development of new protocols that are capable of profiling the proteome of individual mammalian oocytes and embryos. This in..
