membrane-bound structures in the egg, derived from the Golgi apparatus, and found just beneath the plasma membrane. The cortical reaction is the release of their contents (proteases, mucopolysaccharides, and peroxidases) by fusion with the plasma membrane; the changes caused by the cortical reaction help to prevent polyspermy.
