Spermatozoa Mitochondria in Early Mouse Embryos

Live cell fluorescence imaging of sperm mitochondria (red) in early embryos. Sperm mitochondria disaggregated and became restricted to only one blastomere during one-cell to four-cell stages. Sperm mitochondria distributed in several cells after the eight-cell stage and could be detected until morula stages.

Scale bars: 20 µm.
