BACKGROUND: Preliminary observations revealed that advanced zygotes of the PO strain mouse are often bilaterally symmetrical, and suggested that both the plane of first cleavage and features of the blastocyst bear a consistent relationship to the zygote's bilateral plane. METHODS: Spaced oil drops were injected into the zona pellucida to delineate the bilateral plane in pronuclear zygotes, and a distinct cluster of drops then placed over the second polar body. Such non-invasive marking was co...Expand abstract
