Gametes and embryos sanitary security

  • Pathogens :  
    • Small ruminants lentiviruses, risk of transmission from contaminated female
    • Risk of transmission of equine herpesvirus via sperm and embryo
    • Orbivirus of blue tongue disease
    • Coxiella burnetii in ruminants
  • Diagnostic :  
    • Risk of pathogenic transmission
    • Viral latency associated risks
  • Contrôle :  
    • τ interferon protective action
    • siRNA

Substitution of biological origin products in reproduction biotechnology

  • Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL)
    • Mechanisms of action
    • Structure-fonction relationship
