Is there a centrosome in a human egg cell? Is the reason why the egg cell remains paused before meiosis 2 because there isn't a centrosome, and it only divides when the sperm fertilizes it thus it can have a centrosome? If this is so, then how did oogenesis happen? ?
To answer the first part of your question. The sperm actually introduces two centrosomes. The centrosome then nucleates the new microtubule assembly to form the sperm aster — a step essential for successful fertilization. You can visit these sites Simerly, et al as well as Paweltz, et al
