Table 3 Distribution of embryo morphological quality after oocyte culture with trans-10, cis-12 conjugated linoleic acid isomer (CLA) and exposure to osmotic stress by cryoprotectants without vitrification

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