Ubiquinol-10 delays postovulatory oocyte aging by improving mitochondrial renewal in pigs

Figure 8. Ubiquinol-10 rescued aging-induced compromise of embryo development. The D6 embryo morphologies (A), blastocyst rate (B) in aging 0 h, 24 h, and 48 h groups. Scale bars indicate 100 μm. The D6 embryo morphologies (C) and blastocyst rate (D) in 0 h, Ctrl-24 h, and Ubi-24 h groups. Scale bars indicate 100 μm. (E) D6 blastocyst images in 0 h, Ctrl-24 h, and Ubi-24 h groups. (F) Blastocysts were graded on a scale from 1 to 6, as illustrated. Blastocyst quality was examined in 0 h, Ctrl-24 h, and Ubi-24 h groups. *p < 0.05 and ***p < 0.001 indicate significant differences.
