Prather R. S.
Fertilization of the egg, or oocyte, initiates the entire developmental process,
but while the mechanism by which the spermatozoa triggers the oocyte to
resume meiosis has been studied extensively, conclusions about this process
are still elusive. Some workers have suggested that a molecule on the surface
of the spermatozoon may interact with a receptor on the plasma membrane
of the oocyte, thereby triggering the oocyte to resume meiosis. Other workers
have focused on a ...
