Sample text

DNA methylation is shown as arbitrary units on the y-axis. The DNA methylation level of the preimplantation embryo is the sum of the spermatozoon (blue) and oocyte (pink) methylation. Before the first mitotic division, the sperm genome undergoes active demethylation, and the oocyte genome undergoes passive demethylation throughout several cell divisions. Paternal and maternal genomes remain separated until after the four-cell stage. After the eight-cell stage, a small wave of de novo methylation is observed.

Thus, after being formed in the embryo and remaining in “meiotic stand by” for months or even years, the oocyte can only complete its journey with fertilization. 1. FERTILIZATION AND EGG ACTIVATION Once delivered into the female reproductive tract, sperm cells have to travel a long distance and swim against a series of obstacles (the low vaginal pH, the cervix, and the presence of macrophages in the uterus) that serve as the selection machinery preventing abnormal spermatozoa from reaching the egg.
