From: Replication of somatic micronuclei in bovine enucleated oocytes

  1. Micronucleus- injected (−) (embryos generated from enucleated oocytes injected with one micronucleus and parthenogenetically activated), Micronucleus- injected (+) (embryos generated from enucleated oocytes injected with one micronucleus previously incubated with pCX-EGFP and parthenogenetically activated), Parthenogenetic (−) (parthenogenetically activated oocytes), Parthenogenetic (+) (parthenogenetically activated oocytes injected with pCX-EGFP), Enucleated (+) (enucleated oocytes injected with pCX-EGFP and parthenogenetically activated). egfp expressing embryos: embryos with 2 or more egfp expressing blastomeres (expressing embryos/cleaved embryos).
  2. a,b,c: Values with different superscripts in the same column significantly differ (p≤0.05).
