Submicroscopic study on the cortical granules in the rabbit ovum
Review articleOpen access

Round to oval cortical granules 0.08 to 0.2 μ in diameter were observed in the ovum of the rabbit immediately before ovulation. If fertilization did not occur, the number of these granules appeared to increase. Although occasional granules were observed within the vitellus of the ovum, they appeared in larger numbers in the cortex, where they formed a row beneath the vitelline membrane.
