Table 3 Effects of timing of MG132 treatment (10 μM) 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, 0–6 h MG132, 18–24 h No. of oocytes Cleavage rate (%) Blastocyst rate (%)
Yes Yes 184 39.1 ± 2.5a 11.6 ± 3.1a
Yes No 178 33.0 ± 2.0b 9.4 ± 2.9a
No Yes 172 77.9 ± 2.6c 19.1 ± 1.3b
No No 165 75.0 ± 2.0c 15.0 ± 3.2c
  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).
