  The aim of this study was to investigate ultrastructural changes of Cerebellum in 3mT electromagnetic field exposed rats. Total 30 adult female Wister rats with 3 months of age and weighing 210±10.6 g were used in this study. All female rats subdivided randomly to 2 groups: group 1, serve as untreated controls; group 2, was exposed to 3mT EMF for 4 months, 4 h day-1. After 120 days all rats were killed and their tissue samples from Cerebellum were removed and prepared for electron microscopic studies. Present finding clearly demonstrated that number of purkinje cells in the cerebellum of EMF- exposed rats were decreased significantly (p<0.01) in comparison to control group. The other changes include: condensation of nuclei, dilatation of endoplasmic reticulum, breakdown and disappearance of crista in mitochondria and vacuolization of cytoplasm in the purkinje cells of cerebellum. The mean nuclear diameter in purkinje cells were 45.35±22.85 mm and 26.79±16.36 mm in control and experimental group respectively. The statistical analysis showed that the difference between two group was significant (p = 0.03). Axial ratio of nucleus of purkinje in control and experimental groups were 1.86±0.41 and 1.55±0.14 mm, respectively. The axial ratio of nucleus in purkinje of EMF-exposed cerebellum were decreased significantly in comparison to control group (p = 0.02). These findings indicate that long-term exposure to EMF has detrimental effects on central nervous system at cellular level.

  Vitrification is the commonly used method for long-term storage of pre-implantation mammalian embryos. It is an essential part of assisted reproductive technologies. The re-expansion rate, pregnancy and birth rate of vitrified blastocysts using CPS were compared with OPS and Conventional Straw. Female NMRI mice were injected with Gonadotrophins in order induce them for super ovulation. At that time the mice were sacrified by cervical dislocation and dissected of mouse abdomen. The uterine horns were existed blastocysts were collected in PBS and randomly allocated to four groups: vitrification in CPS, conventional straw, OPS and untreated controls. The vitrification solution was EFS40%. After storage for 1 month in liquid nitrogen, the blastocysts were thawed in 0.5 M sucrose for in vitro culture in M16 medium. After 6 h of culture, the numbers of expanded blastocysts was recorded and ready for transfer to uterus of pseudo pregnant mouse. The re-expansion rate of the CPS group (72.1%) was significantly higher (p<0.05) than OPS (52.55) and C.S. (38.6%) groups. The pregnancy (70%) and birth rate (45%) of blastocysts in CPS were similar to those of fresh blastocysts (80% and 45.5%) and the pregnancy (10%) and birth rate (5.1%) in Conventional Straws lower than OPS (20 and 7.5%), but were not significantly different. Mouse blastocysts vitrified using CPS had a better result compared with OPS and Conventional Straw. The value of CPS for vitrification of blastocysts may also merit investigation.
