Resumo:  Cryopreservation procedures have been shown to be extremely disruptive to the plasma membrane and intracellular organization of mammalian oocyte. Cytochalasin-B (Cyt-B) or EGT A may stabilize oocyte cytoskeletal elements prior to Cryopreservation and make the plasma membrane less rigid and more elastic to avoid injury during the osmotic stresses of freezing. Experiments were conducted to assess the morphological viability and developmental potential of bovine and rhesus monkey oocytes roter exposure to Cyt-B or EGTA prior to freezing and vitrification. ln the bovine experiments: The methods of oocyte isolation, in vitro maturation (IVM), in vitro fertilization (IVF) , and embryonic development (IVC) were as described elsewhere (Biol Reprod. 55:333-339, 1996). AIl data were analyzed by ANOV A and Chi-square using "StatMost" for Windows. ln an initial experiment, a group of ilnmature (GV) oocytes and oocytes roter IVM (ova) were randomly selected and pretreated for 5 min with EGTA (O.IM) or Cyt-B (Img/ml) without cryoprotectant (CPA), and another group were equilibrated for 15 min with the CPA (1.5 M ethylene glycol mixed with 0.5 M glycerol in PHS) roter pretreatment with EGTA or Cyt-B. AIl oocytes were diluted and/or washed and immediately used for IVM and/or IVF and IVC. No significant differences in cleavage (C) development and blastocyst (B) hatching among treatments in the GV oocytes group. Percentages of early C, morula (M), B, and expanded B (EB) development ranged 72-82%, 53-65%, 40-47% and 25-35% respectively. Ova treated with EGTA without CPA produced significantly (P<.05) higher C (31/41,75%), M (48.8%), B (40%) and EB (24.4%) than with Cyt-B. ln the slow freezing experiment, a total of 105 GV oocytes and 155 ova were exposed to (a) zero (b EGTA, or ~) Cyt-B before equilibration with CPA + 0.5 sucrose in PHS plus 15% Fetal bovine serum (PBS/FBS). Gametes were loaded into sterile cryovials, cooled at 2°Chnin to -7°C, seeded, cooled at 0.3°Chnin to -32°C, then plunged in LN2. They were air (10 sec), then wann water (35°C), and diluted out of CPA in 3 steps (1, 0.5, 0.2 M sucrose). Three replicated showed that although many of the frozen-thawed oocytes/ova survived as judged by morphology (range 70-80%), their developmental potential was severely retarded. C ranged between 0% to 14.3%. ln the vitrification experiment, a total of 135 GV oocytes and 90 ova were grouped as above and vitrified in straws containing a mixture of 3.25M glycerol and 4.5M ethylene glycol plus 0.5 sucrose in PBS/FBS. Here, higher (P<.05) morphological survival rates (98%) foIlowed pretreatment with EGT A. However, the developmental potential was very low among aIl groups ranging between 0% to 17.7%. ln the monkey experiments: The methods of oocyte isolation, IVM and IVF was as described ( Theriogenology 43:362, 1995). A total of 72 GV oocytes and 42 ova were subjected to slow rate freezing and vitrification in groups as described for cow oocytes above. Pretreatment of both GV oocytes or ova with EGTA or Cyt-B prior to freezing or vitrification resulted in 77.6% morphological survival which was significantly (P<.OI) higher than for the control (50%). No differen?s in fertilization and development were detected mnong treatment. Per?ntages of C to 4-?Il stage ranged from 50-67%. Results suggest prefreeze treatment with EGTA and/or Cyt-B may be useful in enhancement of oocyte/ovum cryopreservation.
