In most mammals, the testes are located in scrotal sac for____.
Testis is located in scrotal sac out of the abdominal cavity. Sperm formation require 1-2 degree less temperature than normal body temperature. The process of spore formation is called spermatogenesis.
Ovum receives the sperm in the region of
Ovum acquires polarity as two poles become distinct. At one end the cytoplasm is more active and contains the nucleus while at the other, called the vegetal pole, the cytoplasm is less active and contains most of the yolk.
Since nucleus is present at animal pole, this is where sperm penetrates ovum and sperm's nucleus fuses with the nucleus of the ovum to form a zygote.
So, the correct answer is 'Animal pole'.
Bidder’s canal is meant for the passage of
Bidder’s canal is present in male reproductive system. It is meant for passage of sperms during coitus.
The glandular tissue of each breast is divided into 15-20_____.
The glandular tissue of each breast is divided into 15-20 mammary lobes which contain cluster of alveoli. Cells of alveoli secretes milk.
In sectional view of female reproductive system, which one is correctly labeled?
Infundibulum and fimbriae are the parts of fallopian tube (oviduct) through which ovum released from ovary passes towards uterus. Fertilisation of ovum occurs in fallopian tube.
The anterior most portion of the external genitalia of female which is fatty area covered with skin and pubic hair is called______.
Mons pubis is the anterior most portion of the external genitalia of human females which is fatty area covered with the skin and pubic hair.
Urethra is an 8 to 10 inch long muscular tube. The urethra passes through the prostate glands and end at the_________.
Semen passes from the ejaculatory duct to the exterior of the body via urethra. The urethra passes through the prostate glands and ends at the external urethral orifice.
The middle layer of uterus is thick muscular myometrium that help in_________.
The middle layer of uterus is thick and muscular structure called myometrium that help in exhibiting strong contraction during delivery of the baby.
Primary germ layers are_______,________ and__________.
Development of fetus start from zygote divisions to form embryo. The embryo undergoes multiple divisions to form blastocysts that arrange into layers. The primary layers are ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm.
Scrotal sacs of man and rabbit are connected with the abdominal cavity by:
Scrotal sac contains testes in male. Scrotal sacs are connected with the abdominal cavity by inguinal canal which is a passage in the anterior abdominal wall which in man conveys the spermatic cord.
In female baby, oogenesis starts before the birth of baby after forming primary oocyte. Further development to ovum occurs after attaining puberty.
How many sperms are formed by 4 primary spermatocytes?
Each primary spermatocyte undergoes first meiotic division to produce 2 secondary spermatocytes, which further proceeds to second meiotic division to form 2 spermatids. So, each primary spermatocyte produces 4 sperms.
The developing sperms are nourished by:
Seminiferous tubules contain Spermatogonia and Sertoli cells. Spermatogonium undergoes meiotic division to produce sperms and Sertoli cells provide nourishment to them.
Which of the following control the function of Sertoli cell?
FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) stimulates Sertoli cells to secrete spermatogenic substance. Sertoli cells function as nurse cells for differentiating spermatozoa.
A human female is born with a million of primary oocytes at the time of birth. How many eggs get a chance to mature?
Girls are born with 200-300 millions of primary oocytes but all of these oocytes do not get chance to mature and change into ovum because one ovary produce only one ovum each month in the middle of menstrual cycle. So, about 500 eggs are released by female during her reproductive life.
Testosterone is secreted by____.
Testosterone hormone help in release of sperm from testis. This hormone is released by leydig cells present in between seminiferous tubules of testis.
What happen during fertilisation after all the sperm reach close to ovum?
Millions of sperms are released during insemination that reaches to ovum for fertilisation. Only one sperm enter the ovum by penetrating the zona pellucida layer of ovum using the enzyme present in its acrosome.
A Human female reaches menopause around the age of_____.
The stoppage of menstrual cycle in human female is called menopause. This indicates the end of reproductive phase of female at the age of about 50 years.
Which one is the most likely reason of not occurring regular menstrual cycle?
Menstrual cycles get stopped during pregnancy. Sometimes it becomes irregular due to stress and other hormonal activities of the body.
Shortest phase of the menstrual cycle is______.
Menstrual cycle is divided into several phase starting from menses during which endometrium breaks and comes out through vagina for 4 to 5 days. Ovulatory phase occurs in the middle of menstrual cycle (14/15th day) during which egg is released.
Amniotic fluid is________.
The inner foetal membrane invests the embryo and forms a space called amniotic cavity. It is filled with fluid called amniotic fluid. It is useful for studying chromosomal abnormalities of foetus.
Finger-like projections appear on the trophoblast after implantation is called?
After implantation of blastocysts, finger-like projections appear on the trophoblast called chronic villi which is surrounded by the uterine tissue and maternal blood.
Inner cell mass (embryo) contain certain cells that contain cells called stem cells which have potency to_______________.
The inner cell mass contain certain cells that contain cells called stem cells which have potency to give rise all the tissues and organs. Now a day’s stem cells are preserved for future use.
Which of the following is formed first out of the following in growing foetus: hairs, limbs and digits, heart, eye lids?
The heart is formed first in foetus after one month of pregnancy. Limbs and digits after second months, limbs and external genital organs after three months and eye lids and hair after six months.
Parturition occurs due to release of hormone oxytocin that cause_______.
Oxytocin hormone is released by foetal ejection reflex from maternal pituitary gland that causes stronger and stronger uterine contraction that leads to ejection of baby through birth canal.
