Table 3 The effect of LPA supplementation of in vitro oocyte maturation medium on the bovine embryo development and blastocyst morphological quality

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 Matured oocytes, n Cleaved embryos, n (%) P value of cleavage rate Blastocyst on Day 7, n (%) P value of blastocyst rate Qualities 1 and 2, n (%) P value of blastocyst qualities
Control (PBS) 248 143 (57,6) 0,5871 62 (25,0) 0,3628 36 (58,1) 0,5946
LPA (10 −5 M) 247 136 (55,1) 71 (28,7) 45 (63,4)
  1. Proportion of the cleaved embryos on Day 2 and blastocysts on Day 7 of embryo culture relative to the total number of matured oocytes
  2. Proportion of qualities 1 and 2 of blastocysts relative to the total number of blastocysts
  3. P values determined by Fisher’s exact test
