"Lipid droplets in mammalian eggs are utilized during embryonic diapause"
We are proud of Małgosia's and Ewelina's new paper in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America journal (IF=9.412) entitled: "Lipid droplets in mammalian eggs are utilized during embryonic diapause". In the published work, the authors explained the key role of lipid droplets in embryonic diapause, which is a reversible arrest of embryonic development in the blastocyst stage in the absence of adequate reception signals from the uterus. Lipids are a source of energy for the embryo during embryonic diapause, and the amount of lipids in the oocytes of a given mammalian species is correlated with its length.
