(Gr. zygoô, to yoke) n. A cell formed by the union of two gametes; broadly: the developing individual produced from such a cell.
zygoein = to yoke together; fusion of male and female germ cells.
the cell that results when an egg is fertilized by a sperm
A conceptus in which the egg and sperm genetic material (pronuclei) have united.
A cell formed by the union of male and female gametes. The fertilized egg before division that forms the fertilized ovum into the earliest embryonic stage (see gametes).
The cell resulting from the fusion of male and female gametes; occurs in the mosquito stomach ( Plasmodium spp.).
Fertilized egg or ovum up to the first cleavage division; this stage of development of the embryo takes about 22 hours, and for the last few of these hours it's at the pronuclear stage. See also pronucleus.
The diploid cell formed from the fusion of two haploid gametes.
a fertilized egg with the diploid number of chromosomes formed by the union of the nuclei of male and female gametes
the cell produced by the fusion of a sperm and an egg.
(Gr. zygon, a yoke) A diploid cell formed by the fusion of two haploid gametes during fertilization in eukaryotic organisms with sexual reproduction. It is the first cell of the new individual.
Cell formed by the union of two gametes and the individual developing from this cell.
The term for a fertilized egg until it begins to cleave, at which time it is known as an embryo.
A fertilized egg, or embryo, in the early stages of development.
A tertiiized oocyte (first stage of embryo development).
a fertilized egg that has not yet divided.
the cell resulting from the union of an ovum and a spermatozoon (including the organism that develops from that cell)
a different substance than any other cell in that it has the potential to become a fully grown human being
a diploid cell formed by the union of two gametes (it results from the union of an egg cell and a sperm cell)
a fertilized egg before cell division begins
a fertilized ovum before it undergoes cell division
a gamete's way of making more gametes
a Gamete's way of producing more Gametes
a medical term that describes human life at its earliest embryonic stage of development
an actual human being, and you did get it right that the sperm is part of a potential human being
a sex cell - but also the last word in the dictionary
a single cell created when a female ovum and a male sperm merge
a single cell that contains the genetic material from each parent
a single cell with a full set of chromosomes that results from the fusion of male and female cells at fertilization
a specialized cell
an embryo in its early developmental stages immediately after fertilisation.
An embryo in early developmental stage.
The cell resulting after fertilization of the oocyte by the sperm. Visible in the laboratory 1 day after egg retrieval.
The fertilized egg or ovum.
Diploid cell produced by the fusion of an egg and sperm; fertilized egg cell.
An egg that has been fertilized but not yet divided.
The term for a fertilized egg prior to it being an embryo.
an embryo in early development stage.
An embryo in early development state.
A fertilised egg which has not yet divided.
A fertilized egg. After this one-celled entity has gone through several cell divisions; it is usually called the "embryo."
Gr. zygotos - yoked together]. The fertilized ovum which results from the fusion of the male and female pronuclei (before the first cleavage division).
An early stage in the development of a fertilized egg.
An embryo in the early stages of development.
A fertilized egg. A zygote has a complete set of chromosomes and a sex, but has not yet implanted in the uterine cavity.
Diploid cell; fertilized ovum
A zygote (Greek: ζυγωτόν) is a cell that is the result of fertilization. That is, two haploid cells—usually (but not always) an ovum from a female and a sperm cell from a male—merge into a single diploid cell called the zygote (or zygocyte).
