Figure 3

Dose-response effect of estrogenic mycotoxins and 17β-estradiol on lateral head displacement (ALH) of stallion sperm. In vitro exposure to 0.1 mM α -ZOL significantly increased (p < 0.05) ALH, compared to control ("0 mM"), whereas ZEA, β-ZOL and E2 did not modify this parameter at any concentration examined. Different letters indicate values that differ significantly a vs b = p < 0.05; n = 5, replicates = 3.
