Table 1 Development of embryos derived from high and low SCR sires

From: Male fertility status is associated with DNA methylation signatures in sperm and transcriptomic profiles of bovine preimplantation embryos

  Total oocytes Mean cleavage rate Mean blastocyst rate
High 2962 70.28% (50.7–84.3) 29.41% (12.7–42.1)
Low 2795 72.74% (61.9–83.6) 27.01% (13.1–36.6)
  1. Embryonic development is represented by the mean rate and the range across 2 IVF replicates per bull, with n = 6 high and n = 6 low SCR bulls. No significant differences were observed for any development measure between high vs. low fertility sires
