Term Information [More information on acrosome reaction]

Accession
GO:0007340
Name
acrosome reaction
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
The discharge, by sperm, of a single, anterior secretory granule following the sperm's attachment to the zona pellucida surrounding the oocyte. The process begins with the fusion of the outer acrosomal membrane with the sperm plasma membrane and ends with the exocytosis of the acrosomal contents into the egg. Source: GOC:dph, PMID:3886029
