Table 2 Concentration-dependent effects of MG132 added from 18–24 h of maturation on yak embryonic development

From: Effect of addition of FSH, LH and proteasome inhibitor MG132 to in vitro maturation medium on the developmental competence of yak (Bos grunniens) oocytes

MG132 (μM) No. of oocytes Cleavage rate (%) Blastocyst rate (%)
0 265 76.8 ± 2.0a 14.1 ± 2.2a
5 233 77.0 ± 1.9a 14.7 ± 1.5a
10 247 79.8 ± 2.2a 18.1 ± 2.8b
20 252 72.1 ± 1.4a,b 12.5 ± 2.2a,c
30 226 69.2 ± 1.6b 10.6 ± 1.3c
  1. Three to five replicates were performed. The blastocyst rate was calculated as the percentage of the number of cleaved embryos. Values with different letters within the same columns differ (P < 0.05).
