  • Mitochondrial respiration and Ca2+ waves are linked during fertilization and meiosis completion 

    Dumollard, Remi; Hammar, Katherine M.; Porterfield, D. Marshall; Smith, Peter J. S.; Cibert, Christian; Rouviere, Christian; Sardet, Christian (Company of Biologists Limited, 2003)
    Fertilization increases both cytosolic Ca2+ concentration and oxygen consumption in the egg but the relationship between these two phenomena remains largely obscure. We have measured mitochondrial oxygen consumption and ...
  • A non-invasive method for measuring preimplantation embryo physiology 

    Trimarchi, James R.; Liu, Lin; Porterfield, D. Marshall; Smith, Peter J. S.; Keefe, David L. (Cambridge University Press, 2000-02)
    The physiology of the early embryo may be indicative of embryo vitality and therefore methods for non-invasively monitoring physiological parameters from embryos could improve preimplantation diagnoses. The self-referencing ...
