Epigallocatechin-3-gallate protects porcine oocytes against post-ovulatory aging through inhibition of oxidative stress


Figure 6. Schematic representation of the protective effects of epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) by targeting mitochondrial function after post-ovulatory aging in pig. EGCG prevents apoptosis by inhibiting mitochondrial P53 and caspase 3 activity and mitochondrial dysfunction and ultimately prevents the oocyte damage induced by post-ovulatory aging.
