Journal Article
Rodríguez-Alonso, B., Maillo, V., Acuña, O. S., López-Úbeda, R., Torrecillas, A., Simintiras, C. A., …Rizos, D. (2020). Spatial and Pregnancy-Related Changes in the Protein, Amino Acid, and Carbohydrate Composition of Bovine Oviduct Fluid. International Journal of Molecular Sciences, 21(5), https://doi.org/10.3390/ijms21051681

Knowledge of how the biochemical composition of the bovine oviduct is altered due to the oviduct anatomy or the presence of an embryo is lacking. Thus, the aim of this study was to assess the effect of (І) oviduct anatomy and (ІІ) embryo presence on...

Effect of metabolic status on conceptus–maternal interactions on day 19 in dairy cattle: II. Effects on the endometrial transcriptome (2017)
Journal Article
Bauersachs, S., Simintiras, C. A., Sturmey, R. G., Krebs, S., Bick, J., Blum, H., …Forde, N. (2017). Effect of metabolic status on conceptus–maternal interactions on day 19 in dairy cattle: II. Effects on the endometrial transcriptome. Biology of Reproduction, 97(3), 413-425. https://doi.org/10.1093/biolre/iox095

The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that the metabolic stresses associated with lactation alter the ability of the endometrium to respond appropriately to the conceptus by examining endometrial gene expression on Day 19 of pregnancy. Imm... Read More about Effect of metabolic status on conceptus–maternal interactions on day 19 in dairy cattle: II. Effects on the endometrial transcriptome.

Genistein crosses the bioartificial oviduct and alters secretion composition (2017)
Journal Article
Simintiras, C. A., & Sturmey, R. G. (2017). Genistein crosses the bioartificial oviduct and alters secretion composition. Reproductive Toxicology, 71, (63-70). doi:10.1016/j.reprotox.2017.04.010. ISSN 0890-6238

The dietary derived isoflavone and oestrogen analogue, genistein, is known to perturb fundamental reproductive events such as implantation and embryo cleavage. However the question of whether genistein is able to traverse the oviduct epithelial monol... Read More about Genistein crosses the bioartificial oviduct and alters secretion composition.

Sexually dimorphic gene expression in bovine conceptuses at the initiation of implantation (2016)
Journal Article
Forde, N., Maillo, V., O'Gaora, P., Simintiras, C. A., Sturmey, R. G., Ealy, A. D., …Lonergan, P. (2016). Sexually dimorphic gene expression in bovine conceptuses at the initiation of implantation. Biology of Reproduction, 95(4), doi:10.1095/biolreprod.116.139857

In cattle, maternal recognition of pregnancy occurs on Day 16 via secretion of interferon tau (IFNT) by the conceptus. The endometrium can distinguish between embryos with different developmental competencies. In eutherian mammals, X-chromosome inact...
