Table 4 Comparison of ER distribution patterns in cortical section of control or diabetic oocytes at MII stage

From: Maternal diabetes causes abnormal dynamic changes of endoplasmic reticulum during mouse oocyte maturation and early embryo development

Group No. oocytes examined Percentage with middle I Percentage with middle II
Control oocytes 38 (from 3 mice) 31 (81.6%) a 7 (18.4%) a
Diabetic oocytes 32 (from 3 mice) 7 (21.9%) b 25 (78.1%) b
  1. * Experiments were repeated at least two times.
  2. a,b Values with different superscript letters are significantly different (P <0.05; Fisher exact test).
  3. (middle I): cortical cluster distribution pattern, (middle II): without cortical clusters.
