Accession:GO:0060471 term browser browse the term
Definition:The process of secretion by a cell that results in the release of intracellular molecules contained within a cortical granule by fusion of the vesicle with the plasma membrane of a cell. A cortical granule is a specialized secretory vesicle that is released during egg activation that changes the surface of the egg to prevent polyspermy.
Synonyms:related_synonym: cortical granule release;   cortical reaction
