Table 2 The effect of LPA supplementation of in vitro oocyte maturation medium on maturation of bovine oocytes

From: The effect of lysophosphatidic acid during in vitro maturation of bovine cumulus–oocyte complexes: cumulus expansion, glucose metabolism and expression of genes involved in the ovulatory cascade, oocyte and blastocyst competence

Supplement Number of oocytes Immature oocytes, n Mature (MII) oocytes, n Maturation rate, % P value of maturation rate
Control (PBS) 114 40 74a 64,9a 0,0242
LPA (10 −5 M) 106 22 84b 79,2b
  1. Proportion of mature oocytes relative to the total number of oocytes
  2. Different letters indicate significant differences (P= 0,0242), as determined by Fisher’s exact test
