A key event in the oocyte-to-embryo transition is the start of the embryonic mitotic cell cycle. Prior to this start, the cell cycle in oocytes is generally arrested at a particular stage during meiosis, and the meiotic arrest is released by fertilization. However, it remains unclear how release from the meiotic arrest is implicated in the start of the embryonic cell cycle. To elucidate this link, we have used starfish eggs, in which G1 phase arrest occurs after completion of meiosis if thedoi:10.1242/dev.035261 pmid:19369392 fatcat:c3jn2lv45vf6pc6sdex2tukxsu
