Name
cortical granule exocytosis
Ontology

Synonyms
cortical granule release, cortical reaction
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
The process of secretion by a cell that results in the release of intracellular molecules contained within a cortical granule by fusion of the vesicle with the plasma membrane of a cell. A cortical granule is a specialized secretory vesicle that is released during egg activation that changes the surface of the egg to prevent polyspermy. Source: GOC:dph
