Activation of the teleost (Brachydanio) fish egg includes the exocytosis of cortical granules, the construction of a mosaic surface consisting of the unfertilized egg plasma membrane and the limiting membranes of the cortical granules, and the appearance of coated and smooth vesicles in the cytoplasm (Donovan and Hart, '82). Unfertilized and activated eggs were incubated in selected extracellular tracers to (1) determine experimentally if cortical granule exocytosis was coupled with the… CONTINUE READING
