Paper published in Science!
06 Sep 2018
The first Pauli lab paper is out in Science! We report the discovery of a short protein that acts as the gatekeeper of the oocyte (hence the name “Bouncer”). Bouncer is essential for fertilization in zebrafish, and, most remarkably, expressing a different species’ Bouncer on zebrafish eggs allows the other species’ sperm to enter. Big congratulations to the authors Sarah Herberg, Krista Gert, and Alex Schleiffer (IMP/IMBA).
