Experimental twinning

Experimental twinning

La reproduction des bovins: anoestrus post partum, transplantation embryonnaire Compte rendu des journees d' information UNCEIA ITEB de mars 1982: ; 85-87

A method of producing monozygotic twins is described. This involves collecting 6- to 8-day embryos from donor cows by the intracervical route, removal of the embryo through an incision in the zona pellucida, bisection of the embryo, and the placing of each half-embryo in an empty zona. Using this technique, 27 monozygotic pairs of embryos were produced from 29 embryos.
