Table 3 Fertilizing potential of BRET-QD labeled spermatozoa

From: Application of quantum dot nanoparticles for potential non-invasive bio-imaging of mammalian spermatozoa

Groups N Proportion (%) of total oocytes analyzed as: Total number of oocytes
Fertilized Unfertilized
Control* 4 63 ± 7 37 ± 7 179
Exposed 4 59 ± 9 41 ± 4 162
  1. *Spermatozoa incubated without BRET-QD (1nM). N Number of independent replicates. There was no significant difference between groups (using the z-ratio for the significant difference between proportions; P = 0.712). Data are means ± s.e.m.
