Accession
GO:0007342
Name
fusion of sperm to egg plasma membrane
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
sperm-oocyte fusion
Definition
The binding and fusion of a sperm, having penetrated the zona pellucida, with the plasma membrane of the oocyte. Binding occurs at the posterior (post-acrosomal) region of the sperm head. Source: http://arbl.cvmbs.colostate.edu/hbooks/pathphys/reprod/fert/fert.html, GOC:jl
