Fig. 5

Distribution of 5-methylcytosine (5mC) and 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC) within the pronucleus. Single images were obtained at different positions of the same pronucleus from z-stacks to illustrate the distribution of 5mC and 5hmC. The pattern of distribution of 5mC and 5hmC differs largely, with 5hmC being distributed homogeneously, while 5mC was concentrated in specific DNA regions. 5mC and 5hmC were evaluated in different zygotes
