Table 3 Ploidy of micronucleus injected bovine embryos

From: Replication of somatic micronuclei in bovine enucleated oocytes

  1. Micronucleus- injected (embryos generated from enucleated oocytes injected with one micronucleus and parthenogenetically activated), Parthenogenetic (parthenogenetically activated oocytes), IVF (embryos generated by in vitro fertilization). %: percentages over total embryos. Euploid: haploid + diploid. Others: tetraploid + mixoploid + aneuploid.
  2. a,b:Values with different superscripts in the same column significantly differ (p≤0.05).
