Resumen : In contrast to the embryos derived from live animals, the embryos produced in vitro undergo increased damage and reduced survival after cryopreservation, particularly when produced with serum. In medium containing serum, retinoic acid increases cell numbers in the inner cell mass and the trophectoderm without altering their relative proportions in the bovine blastocyst. In this work, in medium without serum, we analyzed the contribution of retinoic acid to the development of blastocyst and survival to vitrification, and found a strong cell reduction in the inner mass when compared to the trophectoderm. Day-6 in vitro-produced morulae were treated for 24 h with retinoic acid (0.7 and 1.4 lM) and subsequently cultured without additives for a further 24 h period. Day-8 blastocyst production and cell counts in hatched blastocysts were unaffected by retinoic acid. However, Day-7 expanded, vitrified embryos produced with retinoic acid 1.4 lM survived at lower rates than controls when cultured after warming. Vitrification greatly reduced cell numbers in the inner mass (p < 0.0001), while cells in the trophectoderm remained unaltered. Differential cell counts analysis in blastocysts should be taken up to replace unspecific determination of total cells to appreciate substantial modifications in their exact terms. The strong reduction we found in the inner cell mass could explain why in vitro survival to cryopreservation is sometimes scarcely informative on the viability of the embryo after transfer to recipients.
