Resveratrol increases resistance of mouse oocytes to postovulatory aging in vivo

Figure 1. (A) Ovary weight of control and resveratrol-treated group at day 1, 6, 11 and 15 after treatment. For each time point, at least 30 mice of each group were used for analysis. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM of at least 6 independent experiments. (B) Ovary weight to body weight ratio of control and resveratrol-treated group at day 15 after treatment. At least 30 mice of each group were used for analysis. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM of at least 6 independent experiments. (C) Representative ovarian histology of control and resveratrol-treated group: 48 h after PMSG injection, hCG was administrated and ovaries were collected 24 h later for histological analysis. Black asterisks indicate corpus luteum. Scale bar: 100 μm.
