Fig. 3

Three types of chromatin configurations in mouse oocytes’ nuclei. The confocal single z-sections of DNA staining with DAPI are shown in greyscale. Stage 1 - the NSN-type oocytes (Non Surrounded Nucleolus) show a decondensed chromatin configuration; Stage 2 - the Intermediate (Int) oocytes show a less condensed chromatin and a partial ring of chromatin around the NLB; stage 3 - the SN-type oocytes (Surrounded Nucleolus) show a highly condensed chromatin with a ring around the NLB central body. Bar 10 μm
