The parthenogenetic development of rabbit oocytes after repetitive pulsatile electrical stimulation. The chronology of embryo development from 2-cell stage to blastocyst hatching in different species of farm animals gametogeness goat, rabbit, mouse and human has been presented in Table 3.

Gametogenesis – Spermatogenesis – Oogenesis – TeachMePhysiology

The spemtocytogenesis begins with mitosis of the diploid A spematogonia in the basal compartment of the Sertoli cells.

This is a question and answer forum for students, teachers and general visitors for exchanging articles, answers and notes.

In the doe, antrum formation began when the GCs are about six cell layers in thickness and the Zona Pellucida ZP is visible at this stage Ariyaratna and Gunawardana, The gameyogenesis growth is associated with increase in number of mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi complex and accumulation of reserve food material called yolk or vitellin. Contents 1 Spermatogenesis 2 Oogenesis 2.

In amphibians the germ cells arise in the vegetal pole region whereas in mammals the cells arise in the extraembryonic yolk sac mesoderm and then must migrate to and populate the gametkgenesis gonad. A clever solution to this problem would be to have the developing spermatocytes and spermatids share cytoplasmic contents.

Useful Notes on Gametogenesis (Spermatogenesis and Oogenesis)

The changes that occur during capacitation in the sperm plasma membrane include modification of ion channels, increased adenylate cyclase and cyclic adenosine monophosphate cAMPchanges in surface glycoprotein moieties that lead to changes in lectin binding patterns and also enzymatic modification of surface proteins such as sugar transferases.

Preleminary observation on polar body extrusion and gametogenezis formation in the human oocytes using time-lapse video cinematography. In goat, initial and principal activations of embryonic genome cell stage are reported to be occurring at 2-cell and 8-cell stage, respectively Kelk et al.


Van Beneden and T.

It was found from their study that blastomere size significantly affected by degree of fragmentation and multinuclearity and that computer-assisted, multilevel analysis of blastomere size may function as a biomarker for embryo quality Hnida et al. During epididymal maturation, the sperm shed the cytoplasmic droplet, undergo modifications in the protein, carbohydrate and glycoprotein composition of the plasma membrane and acquire a net negative charge Yanagimachi, ; Harrison, The growth is associated with both nuclear and cytoplasmic growth.

In vitro capacitation of hamster spermatozoa by follicular fluid. The second polar body is formed only when the sperm enters into ovum during fertilization. The large spherical nucleus becomes smaller by losing water and usually changes its gametogenesix into elongated structure.

The mammalian sperm nucleus is packed with distinct protamines. Interestingly the spermatocytes and subsequent cells differentiate in the cytoplasm of the Sertoli cells.

In vitro growth and maturation of caprine oocytes. gametogenewis

Nucleus and the acrosome combinedly form the head of the developing sperm while the cytoplasm with mitochondria and centrioles move downwards and form the cylindrical middle piece behind gametogenesjs head Fig. A sperm ion channel required for sperm motility and male fertility. The ZP of a goat oocyte from antral follicle bigger than 2 mm is about 3. By transferring genetic information from one generation to the next, it ensures the immortality of vebetal individual and by creating variation it allows evolutionary forces to operate Elder and Dale, Intracytoplasmic sperm injection in the mouse.

Useful Notes on Gametogenesis (Spermatogenesis and Oogenesis)

The primary germ cells multiply by repeated mitotic division. The primary oocyte which is transformed from each oogonium is a cell which becomes enclosed in a follicle, known as primordial follicle.

In goat, compaction of the embryo begins at 8-cell stage Sakkas et al. Thus, spermatid is transformed into a motile sperm divisible into head, middle piece and tail. The type B cell is the immediate precursor to the primary spermatocyte which enters meiosis I and is before the secondary spermatocyte which completes meiosis The spermatid with the haploid DNA undergoes the last step of the process spermiogenesis to become the mature differentiated and highly specialized spermatozoon.


A search of available literature revealed one paper where morphometric measurements of human ICSI-derived cleaved embryos were performed up to 4-cell stage. From in vitro studies, it is found that goat oocytes acquired the ability to initiate meiotic resumption in early antral follicles of 0.


Depending upon gametotenesis species, there is a great deal of variation of the beginning of embryo compaction stage. In vitro growth of oocytes from domestic species. This process is termed as spermatogenesis in the male and oogenesis in the female. However, till to date, the exact mechanism on how these enzymes and factors capacitate sperm remains unknown reviewed in Elder and Dale, In frog, the animal hemisphere is highly pigmented and appears gamegogenesis while the vegetal hemisphere is highly pigmented and appears white.

These steps have been summarized previously Bedford, ; Yanagimachi, This replenishment of spermatogonia means that males are fertile throughout their adult life. Synthetic Events in the Developing Mammalian Egg. After continuation of meiosis, the oogenesis process until completion is very fast. This would allow the “cells” i. The type A cells divide once mitotically but without cytokinesis gametogemesis form a syncytium a group of nuclei sharing a common cytoplasm and without the usual complete plasma membrane divisions.

Comparative intracytoplasmic sperm injection ICSI in human and domestic species. The role of gametogejesis maturation inhibition in follicular regulation of oocyte maturation. The zygote or one-cell stage gamteogenesis is comparatively large, having a low nuclear to ooplasmic ratio. After losing its acrosomal content the spermatozoon retains only the inner acrosomal membrane that makes direct contact with the ZP during penetration. Germ cells and Fertilisation.

Journal of Biological Sciences Volume 8 7: The oocyte undergoes a series of changes in its nucleus, ooplasm gametogenesiw organization of the plasma membrane oolemma during the period between the LH surge and ovulation, which is known as oocyte maturation. During first maturation division, the reshuffling of paternal and maternal genes take place resulting in variation.

Sperm are continually produced as males need to be ready to utilise the small window of fertility of the female. The primary oocyte undergoes two successive divisions by meiosis.

Chemical signals that regulate mammalian oocyte maturation.
