In other words, it is an immature ovum , or egg cell. An oocyte is produced in the ovary during female gametogenesis. The female germ cells produce a primordial germ cell PGC , which then undergoes mitosis , forming oogonia. During oogenesis , the oogonia become primary oocytes.

Oocyte Development

Oocyte Development - Embryology

The essence of fertilization is the union and mingling of male and female genomes. Therefore it is not surprising that microsurgical deposition of a single spermatozoon in an oocyte ICSI results in the development of normal offspring. Poorly motile or structurally aberrant spermatozoa, which are unable to fertilize under ordinary conditions, are not necessarily genomically abnormal. This is the reason why normal offspring are obtained after ICSI using such spermatozoa. Injection of round spermatids into oocytes ROSI works routinely in the mouse, but it is controversial in humans. While some investigators have claimed successes, many others have reported complete failure.

43.3C: Gametogenesis (Spermatogenesis and Oogenesis)

Gametogenesis occurs when a haploid cell n is formed from a diploid cell 2n through meiosis. We call gametogenesis in the male spermatogenesis and it produces spermatozoa. In the female, we call it oogenesis. It results in the formation of ova. This article covers both oogenesis and spermatogenesis.
One of the biggest prerequisites for pregnancy is the fertilization step, where a human haploid spermatozoon interacts and penetrates one haploid oocyte in order to produce the diploid zygote. Although fertilization is defined by the presence of two pronuclei and the extraction of the second polar body the process itself requires preparation of both gametes for fertilization to take place at a specific time. These preparations include a number of consecutive biochemical and molecular events with the help of specific molecules and with the consequential interaction between the two gametes. These events take place at three different levels and in a precise order, where the moving spermatozoon penetrates a the outer vestments of the oocyte, known as the cumulus cell layer; b the zona pellucida ZP ; where exocytosis of the acrosome contents take place and c direct interaction of the spermatozoon with the plasma membrane of the oocyte, which involves a firm adhesion of the head of the spermatozoon with the oocyte plasma membrane that culminates with the fusion of both sperm and oocyte membranes Part I. After the above interactions, a cascade of molecular signal transductions is initiated which results in oocyte activation.
