Abstract

We studied the effect of synthetic peptides PEDF-6 and HLDF-6 on preimplantation development of mouse embryos in vitro. PEDF-6 peptide corresponds to fragment 351–356 and of pigment epithelium-derived differentiation factor (PEDF), while HLDF-6 peptide corresponds to fragment 84–89 of differentiation factor HLDF isolated from HL-60 cell line. Despite high homology, these peptides had different effects on the early development. PEDF-6 had no effect on the cleavage of 2–4-cell embryos but decelerated blastocyst formation from such embryos and disturbed their structure. In the presence of HLDF-6 the blastomeres divided more actively as compared to the control and a higher number of embryos developed to the blastocyst stage. The effects of both peptides were stage-specific: the affect the embryos at early cleavage stages and, apparently, determine their further development at that moment although do not directly affect formation of the blastocysts.
