The epithelium of mammalian oviducts consists mainly of ciliated and non-ciliated secretory cells. In some mammals, secretory products originating from oviductal secretory cells have been shown to bind to the surface of, or accumulate within, ovulated eggs and/or developing embryos. These findings suggest that the secretions of the oviductal epithelial… CONTINUE READING
