Gamete Transport Review Quiz


1. The cumulus cells play an important role in the pick-up by the fimbria of the ovulated oocyte.
2. After sperm deposition in the female reproductive tract, rapid transport
the movement of sperm over the first 15 to 30 minutes.
the movement of sperm over the first 6 to 12 hours.
the movement of sperm after at least 24 hours.
the sperm involved in fertilization.
3. The principle reason fertilization occurs at the junction of the isthmus and ampulla of the oviduct is
fluid secretion by the oviduct.
cillia beating of the ampulla region.
muscle contractions.
the presence of expanded cumulus cells surrounding the oocyte.
4. Which of the following processes are involved in removal of sperm from the female tract.
rapid transport
retrograde flow
phagocytosis by neutraphils
binding to oviduct cells
5. If a cow is inseminated at the start of estrus, and the oviduct transected at the utero-tubal junction 12 hours after insemination then which of the following is likely true?
Fertilization occurs as normal.
Fertilization will not occur due to blocking of sustained transport.
fertilization will not occur due to lack of oocyte pick-up by the fimbria.
fertilization will not occur due to blocking rapid transport.
6. Decapacition factors can originate from which of the following?
Choice 1 epidiymis
Choice 2 accessory gland fluid
Choice 3 bladder secretions
Choice 4 cervical mucus
7. To avoid retrograde flow of semen, the boar has a large volume of the ejacualte and the presence of a gel in the seminal plasma.
8. If a sow oviduct is transected 2 cm above the uterotubal junction 35 hours after insemination, when insemination is at the start of estrus and ovulation occurs in this experimental model at 40 hours after insemination, there will be no fertilization.
