GD 3.5 blastocysts from LPS-treated dams have fewer ICM cells and reduced ICM:TE cell ratios vs. controls. (A) Mean total, TE and ICM cell numbers and (B) ICM:TE cell ratios. All values represent means ± SEM. *P ≤ 0.05 vs. control (n = 33 to 50 blastocysts per treatment; n = 4 to 8 mothers per treatment).
