Abstract

At the time of fertilization, the sperm activates the egg and induces embryonic development by triggering an elevation in the egg's intracellular free Ca(2+) concentration. In mammals the initial Ca(2+) rise is followed by a series of repetitive Ca(2+) transients (known as oscillations) that last for several hours. Although the source of Ca(2+) during the signaling process is primarily the egg's smooth endoplasmic reticulum, the oscillations stop in the absence of extracellular Ca(2+) indicating that a Ca(2+) influx across the plasma membrane is essential to sustain them. Depletion of the intracellular stores using specific inhibitors generates a Ca(2+) entry across the plasma membrane of eggs of various species, and a continuous influx of Ca(2+) has been linked to the sperm-induced Ca(2+) oscillations in the mouse; these data indicate that store-operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE) operates in eggs and may be the mechanism that maintains the long-lasting Ca(2+) signal at fertilization. Recent findings suggest that the signaling proteins STIM1 and Orai1 are present in eggs; they are responsible for mediating SOCE, and their functions are essential for proper Ca(2+) signaling at fertilization to support normal embryo development.
