Lactose was also used as a cryoprotectant with hybrid mouse sperm; although it did not preserve motility post-thaw as well as sucrose or trehalose, it did produce sperm with high fertilization capability [31]. Disaccharides Sucrose Sucrose is a naturally occurring sugar used by various plants and animals to avoid damage during freezing (reviewed by Fuller et al. [69]). Consequently, it makes the compound an obvious choice as a non-permeating cryoprotectant. In regard to gametes and embryos, sucrose was first used to vitrify frog sperm [78], and 1–2 mol/l concentrations were also used, in conjunction with PROH, in the first protocol that resulted in successful cryopreservation of human pronuclear stage embryos [50].

It is proposed that glycerol acts primarily by adding to the colligative properties of a solution and reducing the salt concentration during freezing [63]. Although permeability of glycerol is low compared with that of other cryoprotectants, several successful cryopreservation protocols still utilize glycerol. It appears that aquaporin 3 plays an instrumental role in the facilitated diffusion of glycerol into oocytes and embryos [34,64,65]. Ethylene glycol Adonitol Ethylene glycol is most widely known for its use as an antifreeze in vehicles, which makes it a logical choice Adonitol belongs to a group known as polyols or sugar alcohols, and it is postulated that these compounds Propylene glycol 27 Section 1.

Inclusion of dextran in media has also been shown to alleviate cracking of mouse zona pellucida following cryopreservation [100]. Interestingly, dextran did little to alter the glass transition temperature of an ethylene glycol vitrification solution [101]. Efficacy of dextran for use with human oocytes or embryos is unknown. Macromolecules/polymers 30 Macromolecules or polymers are often included, though not required, as additional protective additives in cryopreservation media. These compounds promote vitrification of a solution [102] and thus may help to reduce toxicity concerns by allowing the concomitant decrease in concentrations of potentially harmful permeating agents.
