MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 40 blastocysts from a black mouse strain were biopsied. The mouse blastocysts were fixed with a holding pipette. The zona pellucida and trophectoderm layer were penetrated with an injection pipette, and cells from the inner cell mass (ICM) were aspirated. The pipette was removed and the ICM cells were transferred into a medium.
RESULTS: The blastocysts collapsed after pipette removal and were allowed to regenerate for 6 h. Twenty-four blastocysts recovered, expanded and were implanted into four white surrogate mothers. One surrogate mother gave birth to two black pups.
CONCLUSION: This experiment demonstrates that nondestructive blastocyst biopsy from the ICM is possible in mice.
