Oocyte development within avian ovarian follicles is an intricate process involving yolk deposition and the formation of extraoocytic matrices. Of these, the perivitelline membrane (pvm) not only plays a role in sperm binding but also provides mechanical support for the large oocyte's journey through the oviduct after ovulation. To date we have focused on the mechanisms for uptake of yolk precursors into oocytes of the chicken; now we extend our studies to a detailed analysis of the pvm. In the… CONTINUE READING
