[Article in Russian] We have found that two-cell mouse embryos cultured in vitro can be stimulated by electromagnetic irradiation in the millimeter range. After 30 min of exposure, they acquire the ability to develop in culture on their own and can reach the stage of blastocyst in a relatively large volume of Whitten cultural medium (150 microliters) without serum or growth factors.
It is proposed that millimeter range electromagnetic waves activate metabolic processes and specifically the synthesis of factors controlling early embryonic development in culture.
