Exposure to aristolochic acid I compromises the maturational competency of porcine oocytes via oxidative stress-induced DNA damage

Figure 5. Effects of AAI exposure on the distribution of mitochondria in porcine oocytes. (A) Representative images of mitochondrial staining in control and AAI-exposed oocytes. Scale bar, 20 μm. (B) Abnormal rates of mitochondrial distribution in control and AAI-exposed oocytes. (C) The fluorescence intensity of mitochondrial signals was measured in control and AAI-exposed oocytes. Data in (B) and (C) were presented as mean percentage (mean ± SEM) of at least three independent experiments. ***P < 0.001.
