LD aggregates stained with LipidTox. Two examples of LD aggregates from a live blastocyst stained with LipidTox and imaged by confocal microscopy. (A' and B') are different 3D views of the LD in (A and B) respectively. Corresponding LD are numbered in the two views, and the orientation is shown at bottom left. (A'' and B'') Optical section of the LD in (A and B) respectively, showing that LD are aggregates of smaller LD. LD numbers correspond to those in the volume renderings. Scale bar in (A'') = 2 μm and in (B'') = 5 μm.
