News: Human egg cells are often genetically abnormal

15 December 2020 by Dr Marieke Bigg

Meiosis, when cells divide to produce eggs, goes wrong much more than previously thought. 

A team at Washington State University has found that immature human egg cells, or oocytes, contain an unbalanced number of chromosomes around seven percent of the time. This suggests that meiosis, the process of division that produces oocytes with half the chromosomes, goes wrong more often than previously thought. This challenges the idea that maternally advancing age is a key cause of chromosome abnormality in eggs.
