fusion of sperm to egg plasma membrane Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The binding and fusion of a sperm, having penetrated the zona pellucida, with the plasma membrane of the oocyte. Binding occurs at the posterior (post-acrosomal) region of the sperm head. (Gene Ontology, GO_0007342)
