  • organism
  • Not only does the zona keep the new organism safe inside, it also prevents it from implanting in the uterus , or womb, too soon. (study.com)
  • cells
  • Microarray data revealed that 48 and 27 differentially expressed candidate genes in cumulus cells (CCs) were respectively overexpressed and underexpressed in the ZGP (Zona Good Pregnant) versus ZBNP (Zona Bad Non Pregnant) groups. (biomedcentral.com)
  • despite
  • Blastocysts exhibit "hatching" behavior despite absence of the zona. (sciencemag.org)
  • Despite more than 40 years of research into zona pellucida (ZP)-based vaccines, relatively little is known about their mechanism of action. (up.ac.za)
  • name
  • The zona pellucida (ZP) is a name given to a clear (lucid) zone, or region that surrounds the unfertilized egg and works to keep out those pesky stray sperm that hang around after the new couple meets up. (study.com)
  • cell
  • The aim of this study was to examine the impact of zona pellucida damage, which might arise during somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT), on the development and survival of transferred embryos. (semanticscholar.org)
  • specific
  • Two zona pellucida protein genes (zpb and zpc) from European eel were characterized, specific qPCR assays developed and their expression in immature males and females carried out. (upv.es)
  • Development
  • We postulated that there is a blockade prior to the first appearance of zona pellucida (4 months) during the development of growing follicles. (vin.com)
