Phosphatidylcholine could protect the defect of zearalenone exposure on follicular development and oocyte maturation

Figure 6. The effect of LPC co-treated ZEA on the follicular antrum formation andcumulus cell (CC) expansion. (A) The effect of supplementary 10 µg/mL LPC on the formation of follicular antrum of 10 µM ZEA treated OGCs after 12 d culture. (B) Morphology of CC expansion status in 10 µg/mL LPC and 10 µM ZEA co-treated conditions. (C) The effect of supplementary10 µg/mL LPC on CC expansion related gene expression of 10 µM ZEA treated cumulus oocyte complex (COCs). * or ** mean P < 0.05 or 0.01.
