Table 3 The cleavage, morula and blastocyst rates (mean ± SD) in zygotes injected with miR-130b precursor, miR-130b inhibitor or scramble miRNA and uninjected group

From: MicroRNA-130b is involved in bovine granulosa and cumulus cells function, oocyte maturation and blastocyst formation

Treatment groups No. zygotes First cleavage 48 hpi (%) Morula rate (%) Blastocyst rate (%)
miR-130b precursor 490 77.1 ± 5.1 32.7 ± 3.8a 28.1 ± 2.2a
miR-130b inhibitor 451 76.1 ± 0.9 23.2 ± 2.5b 21.3 ± 1.9b
Scramble miRNA 454 79.9 ± 1.2 27.3 ± 3.8ab 25.9 ± 3.1a
Uninjected control 326 79.4 ± 5.1 32.7 ± 2.4a 27.2 ± 2.6a
