Caption: Mature oocyte with a polar body. Coloured light micrograph of a human secondary oocyte (mature egg), with its first polar body. At centre is the egg (yellow) with the polar body coloured yellow and wedge-shaped (lower centre right). Before ovulation the egg cell undergoes meiotic division giving rise to two cells: a secondary oocyte and a polar body. The polar body degenerates and has no function. Here, directly around the egg is the zona pellucida single layer of cells (unfocused); outside the zona pellucida are several layers of cells making up the corona radiata (blue). Magnification: x560 at 6x7cm size. x740 at 4x5".
