...Karolina Piotrowska; Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz The first cleavage of the fertilised mouse egg divides the zygote into two cells that have a tendency to follow distinguishable fates. One divides first and contributes its progeny predominantly to the embryonic part of the blastocyst, while the other...

...Xudong Shi; Simin Amindari; Kavitha Paruchuru; Dale Skalla; Heather Burkin; Barry D. Shur; David J. Miller ABSTRACT ZP3 is a protein in the mammalian egg coat (zona pellucida) that binds sperm and stimulates acrosomal exocytosis, enabling sperm to penetrate the zona pellucida. The nature of the ZP3...

... normal cleavage to the 8-cell stage. We discuss that although polarity of the postimplantation embryo can be traced back to the 8-cell stage and in turn to the organisation of the egg, it is not absolutely fixed by this time. The polar bodies from the meiotic divisions define the animal pole of the egg...

...Tie-Shan Tang; Jian-Bo Dong; Xiu-Ying Huang; Fang-Zhen Sun ABSTRACT At fertilization in mammals, the sperm activates the egg by inducing a series of oscillations in the intracellular free Ca 2+ concentration. There is evidence showing that this oscillatory event is triggered by a sperm-derived...
