Annual Review about Sperm-Egg Fusion

26 Jul 2021

A lockdown project came to a very fruitful end: It’s great to see our Annual Review in Cell and Developmental Biology about “The Fertilization Enigma: How Sperm and Egg Fuse” out online!

Big congratulations to Victoria, who was very much the brain behind this review and took the lead on writing. In this review, we ‘merge’ the current knowledge of the fertilization field, with a main focus on mammalian sperm-egg interaction, with ideas and concepts from cell-cell and viral-cell fusion.

We hope that this review will provide a fresh view on the big open questions in the field of fertilization.

A (not-yet-final) version of the review is already available online. Happy reading!
