Egg Activation

What Does Fetal

Egg Activation?

Egg activation is a series of biological and chemical processes that occur in an egg once a sperm has entered the egg and prior to fertilization. These processes allow for the DNA from an egg to mix with the DNA from a single sperm.

Once the egg and sperm combine their DNA, fertilization has taken place and an embryo starts to form. Egg activation must occur in order for the egg to be successfully fertilized.
