Research overview:
To investigate the mechanism of fertilization, we focused on the following subjects which are 1) egg-activating protein of sperm and egg activation, 2) species heterogeneity of the egg-activating protein, 3) egg activation by introcyto plasmic mammalian sperm injection and its application of developmental induction. These studies are conducted by analyzing intracellular Ca2+.
