In both vertebrates and invertebrates, meiotic divisions in oocytes are typically asymmetric, resulting in the formation of a large oocyte and small polar bodies. The size difference between the daughter cells is usually a consequence of asymmetric positioning of the spindle before cytokinesis. Spindle movements are often related to interactions between the cell cortex and the spindle asters [1,2]. The spindles of mammalian oocytes are, however, typically devoid of astral microtubules, which… CONTINUE READING
