Abstract

By means of an embryo culture technique, it was shown that vitamin E has a direct action, without recourse to the maternal metabolism, in maintaining embryonic growth. The action of N,N' diphenyl p phenylene diamine in vitro was similar to that of vitamin E but ethoxyquin was inactive; the results were similar to those previously obtained in vivo by other workers with these two antioxidants.
