Expression patterns of ADAM10 during porcine embryo development.

(A) Transcript levels of ADAM10 were upregulated from the morula stage and highest at the blastocyst stage; The quantitative RNA expression is presented as mean ± SEM; RQ: relative quantification. Asterisks indicate statistically significant differences (P < 0.05). (B) Analysis of expression and localization of ADAM10 in porcine embryos by immunocytochemistry (ICC). The ADAM10 signal was detected by an ADAM10 specific antibody (Green). Scale bars: 50 μm.
