Role of ion channel modulators in oocyte ageing. AC The protective effect of minoxidil (K+ATP channel activator) treatment on oocyte ageing. DF A similar effect was observed with verapamil (inhibitor Ca2+ channels). Specifically, A, D increased intact MII oocyte numbers, B, E suppression of apoptotic or lytic oocytes (cell death), and ultimately, C, F parthenogenetically activated oocytes. Different superscripts indicate statistically significant differences (P ≤ 0.05)
