Question Description

What are cortical granules? plus a reference please.

Tutor Answer

School: University of Virginia

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.
