52-54 During cleavage, several changes fundamental to embryonic development occur at the molecular level. One of the most important processes is the generation of cell diversity. Initially, all blastomeres express a specific transcription factor, oct-4, which reflects the undifferentiated state of these cells. If separated from the others at this stage, each of the blastomeres has the capacity to form a complete embryo. By the 8- and 16-cell stage the embryo is a solid mass of cells called a morula.

A and B show sperm binding and the acrosome reaction, exposing the zona to acrosomal enzymes. C depicts penetration of the enzyme-modified zona pellucida by the sperm. D shows activation of the egg, including oocyte membrane hyperpolarization and release of enzymes by the cortical granules. ) Studies at the molecular level have revealed that a component of the zona pellucida is a key substance in the fertilization pathway.
