Table 2 Effect of trans-10, cis-12 conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) on the embryo production rates of bovine oocytes exposed to osmotic stress by cryoprotectants without vitrification

From: Conjugated linoleic acid improves oocyte cryosurvival through modulation of the cryoprotectants influx rate

Treatment Inseminated oocytes (n) Cleavage (%) D7/8 embryo (%)
Control 209 70.5+/−5.1ab 25.3+/−4.5a
CLA 194 78.9+/−5.2a 30.8+/−4.7a
Control exposed 207 71.8+/−5.1ab 13.3+/−4.4b
CLA exposed 202 64.4+/−5.2b 21.5+/−4.7ab
