Intracellular Ca2+ increase induces post-fertilization events via MAP kinase dephosphorylation in eggs of the hydrozoan jellyfish Cladonema pacificum.

Abstract

Naturally spawned eggs of the hydrozoan jellyfish Cladonema pacificum are arrested at G1-like pronuclear stage until fertilization. Fertilized eggs of Cladonema undergo a series of post-fertilization events, including loss of sperm-attracting ability, expression of adhesive materials on the egg surface, and initiation of cell cycle leading to DNA synthesis… (More)
