oocyte ovocyte
Oocytes definition: Female germ cells derived from OOGONIA and termed OOCYTES when they enter MEIOSIS. The primary oocytes begin meiosis but are arrested at the diplotene state until OVULATION at PUBERTY to give rise to haploid secondary oocytes or ova (OVUM).
Oocyte definition: Germ cell of the female sex.
Oocyte definition: Germ cell of the female sex.
Oocyte definition: The female gamete, germ cells in stages between the prophase of the first maturation division and the completion of the second maturation division.
Oogonia definition: Euploid female germ cells of an early stage of OOGENESIS, derived from primordial germ cells during ovarian differentiation. Oogonia undergo MEIOSIS and give rise to haploid OOCYTES
Primary Oocyte definition: The primitive differentiated female gamete which gives rise to an oocyte. (MeSH)
Ovum definition: A mature haploid female germ cell extruded from the OVARY at OVULATION.
egg/ovum definition: mature haploid female germ cell extruded from the ovary at ovulation; do not confuse with the animal reproductive bodies, or the contents thereof, used as food, EGG FOOD PRODUCT.
Sperm-Ovum Interactions definition: Interactive processes between the oocyte (OVUM) and the sperm (SPERMATOZOA) including sperm adhesion, ACROSOME REACTION, sperm penetration of the ZONA PELLUCIDA, and events leading to FERTILIZATION.
Secondary Oocyte definition: A female germ cell in which the first meiotic division is completed. The second meiotic division usually stops short of completion unless fertilization occurs.

ovocyte definition: Cellule germinale femelle située dans l’épaisseur du parenchyme ovarien et dont la maturation nucléaire et cytoplasmique l’amène à l’état d’ovule fécondable.
