Polar body emission is a specialized cell division throughout the animal kingdom, serving to reduce chromosome ploidy while preserving the egg cytoplasm. Critical to polar body emission are the asymmetric positioning of the meiotic spindle prior to anaphase, with one pole attached to the oocyte cortex, and the simultaneous membrane protrusion durin...

... Manually defolliculated oocytes were injected with mRNA encoding various probes, as described in our previous publications (Leblanc et al., 2011;Shao et al., 2012;Zhang et al., 2008). For sfGFP-ER-3 and GFP-IP 3 R1 plasmids, which lack viral (such as SP6 and T7) promoters for in vitro transcription, purified plasmids were injected into the oocyte germinal vesicle (~3nL of 1mg/mL DNA per oocyte). ...
