Abstract Two major light-scattering changes have been detected in sea urchin egg suspensions in the first 4 min after insemination. The kinetics of the initial light-scattering (l.s.) change, a decrease occurring between 40 and 60 sec, are identical with those of cortical granule discharge. The second l.s. change, an increase between 1 and 4 min, appears to reflect structural changes in the fertilization membrane during hardening.
