New cards

fibrinogen, fructose, and prostaglandin

what does the seminal vesicle produce?

New cards


is fibrinogen active or inactive?

New cards

can become activated to fibrin where it then can allow the formation of clots where the prostate gland is required for the clotting factors

what can fibrinogen do?

New cards

energy for the female egg

why is fructose produced by the seminal vesicle?

New cards
  • reverse peristalsis to allow sperm to push up towards the oviduct

  • immunosuppressant to allow foreign sperm to survive

they are nursing cells that make estrogen to allow meiosis

what do sertoli cells do?

New cards

it is for developing sperm and has little micro-environments for sperm as well as to protect them

what are testes blood barrier/tight junction?

New cards

leydig cell will release an androgen that will then go to the basement membrane of the seminiferous tubule where the sertoli cell will then release estrogen to allow meiosis and form sperm

what happens when there is an interaction between leydig cell and the seminiferous tubule?

New cards


is the head of the sperm haploid or diploid?

New cards

mitochondria for energy

what does the midpiece of the sperm do?

New cards

swims in a straight line

what does the flagella do in the sperm?

New cards

9+2 array where it allows microtubules to slide over each other to have the flagella wave like a queen

what does the flagella has?

New cards

dynein attack that is like ATPase

what does the microtubule have to attack the axoneme?

New cards

sympathetic and parasympathetic

what does the autonomic system contain?

New cards

it allows rest and relaxation where it can decrease heart rate , lowers bp, lowers ventilation, increase in blood flow and blood vessel, and stimulates the GI tract

what does the parasympathetic do?

New cards

forms nitric oxide, has vasoactive intestinal peptide to increase blood flow in the GI tract to cause vasodilation

what happens when the parasympathetic interacts with Ach?

New cards

penis comes erect through the activation of it where neurons involved will release Ach

what happens to the penis when it is parasympathetic?

New cards

erectile tissue, corpus carvernosa, thick connective tissue, and corpus spongiosum (wraps around the arethra)

what does the penis contain?

New cards

there is an increase in blood flow which causes turgor pressure where it pushes against something rigid

what happens when the penis is erect?

New cards

there is a venous drainage, but it stops when pushed against to cause back pressure

what happens to the venous in the penis when erect?

New cards

there is a fight or flight, increase in heart rate, bp, ventilation, and has knee jerk responses

what happens in the sympathetic system?

New cards

through the pudenal nerve where it sends information to the brain to say something is happening

where does the sensory end organ of the penis send signals to the spinal cord?

New cards

there is a contraction of the prostate gland, seminal vesicle, and move things out of the epididymis where it all collects in the ejaculatory duct to collect

what happens with the hypogastric nerve?

New cards

ischiovernous and bulbocarnernous

what muscles are contracted at the base of the ejactulatory duct?

New cards


what happens when the contraction of the 2 muscles occur at the penis?

New cards


what can form a clot?

New cards

the sperm will move in a straight line

what happens at the capactiation?

New cards

first third of oviduct

where will the sperm meet the egg?

New cards

the oogonia will form with the primary follicle but will be stuck in prophase I

what happens in oogenesis?

New cards

when she is born

when will a female have all the primary follicles in her life?

New cards

it is clear with a lot of hyaluronic acid which can be broken down by the acrosome

what happens in the zona pellucida?

New cards

it is stimulated by FSH where it forms estrogen; they are also a homolog to the sertoli cell

what happens with the granulosa cell?

New cards

the cilia help bring the ovum when released from the ovary as there is space between the ovary and fallopian tube

what helps the ovum come into the fallopian tube?

New cards

estrogen dominant and positive feedback

what hormone is dominant in the follicular phase and what type of feedback?

New cards

progesterone dominant and negative feedback

what hormone is dominant in the luteal phase and what type of feedback?

New cards

the oocyte, zone pelucita, corona radiata, and granulosa cells, and the atrium which has fluid

what layers does a graffian molecule contain?

New cards
  • graffian molecule is made

  • cervical mucus is very thick so hard for sperm to go through

  • the endometrium comes off, but then starts to regrow through hyperplasia and hypertrophy

what happens in the follicular phase to the body?

New cards

a graffian molecule will rupture where the other 6-20 that were competing will go through atrophy to go through ovulation and to the luteal phase

  • this also happens due to the release of protease by the internal thecal cell to help rupture the molecule

what does a lutenizing hormone surge do to the graffian molecule?

New cards

increase in number

what is hyperplasia?

New cards

increase in size

what is hypertrophy?

New cards
  • an oocyte will be released, leaving behind some granulosa cells

  • the granulosa cells left will pick up cholesterol to form corpus luteum

  • the cervical mucus will be thin and watery as the egg is available

  • the endometrium will get enriched in nutrients and uterine milk

  • there will then be a race with the egg before the progesterone hits a low drop

what happens in the luteal phase?

New cards
  • the corpus luteum is formed where it picked up cholesterol

  • the progesterone then will slowly give a negative feedback

  • the FSH and LH will decrease,

  • the progesterone will also decrease until it hits a threshold to cause menstrual flow

  • if egg is fertilized and implanted into the uterine wall, the progesterone will stay stabilized

what happens with the hormones in the luteal phase?

New cards


is membrane potential always positive or negative?

New cards
  • multiple sperm will come to try to break down the corona radiata and zona pelucita, but there is only one opening to prevent polyspermy

    • contains cortical vesicles within the oocyte that contains fluid

  • sperm causes acrosome reaction where it needs a bunch of sperm to continuously break through the corona radiata and zona pelucita due to hydraulonic acid where then one will eventually enter the oocyte

what happens between the sperm and egg right before fertilization?

New cards
  • the oocyte starts to change

  • the cortical vesicles will explode outwards and push the zona pelucita and corona radiata

  • there will be an increase with the cortical vesicles where the membrane potential will polarize and become positive

  • a proton pump becomes activates where protons are released to be acidic on the ZP and CR

  • releases calcium to the pulastrom nucleus

what happens when the sperm fertilizes the egg?

New cards
  • meiosis one occurs after ovulation

what happens after ovulation for meiosis?

New cards

after fertilization

when does meiosis 2 occur?

New cards

cleavage will then occur where it will form an animal pole and vegetal pole

  • animal pole is smaller but produces the embryo

  • vegetal pole is larger and produces the yolk/nutrients for the embryo

what happens after meiosis 2?

New cards

tropoblast which is like a layer of cells around the embryo that has hydrolytic enzymes to help digest into the endometrium to allow implantation

what forms around the embryo and what does it do?

New cards

the chorion becomes the placenta where it can attach to blood vessels with the endometrium where it can also maintain the endometrium lining where the tropoblast then becomes the amnion

what happens once the embryo implants itself into the endometrium?

New cards

the zygotes will go form the morula (ball of cells) which then goes to the uterus to the blastocyst (hollow ball) which then starts to do gastrulation.

what happens when there is the formation of a zygote?

New cards

their hCG levels are high

how can one know they are pregnant?

New cards

ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm
