A mouse egg is the end-product of oogenesis--a process initiated during fetal development and completed months later at the time of sperm-egg fusion. Oogenesis includes many important events. Among these are formation of female germ cells, initiation and completion of meiosis, and establishment of a maternal store of materials to support fertilization and preimplantation development. The latter takes place largely during germ cell growth in sexually mature females and involves extensive gene… CONTINUE READING
