AbstractFertilization and development of mouse embryos occur in the oviduct. Accumulating data suggested that embryo - maternal communication exists in the preimplantation period, with the female reproductive tract providing the optimal microenvironment conducive to the development of embryos. Signals produced from the developing embryos not only affect their own transport in the oviduct, but the physiology and gene expression patterns of the oviduct. As a step towards understanding the action of embryos on oviductal physiology, both genomics and proteomics approaches are being used to unveil the underlying mechanism of embryo - maternal interaction at the preimplantation stage. Results from recent studies allow us to better understand the roles and the use of oviductal secretory proteins or factors that affect embryo development in vivo and in vitro. It has been shown that in vitro culture alters gene expression of the cultured embryos and may predispose the embryo to certain disease. Therefore, the interaction between gamete/embryo and oviduct in vitro and in vivo, and the long-term effects of embryo culture on foetal development warrant further investigation.
