Abstract

All eukaryotic cells undergo changes in three-dimensional organization which are controlled by the cytoskeleton. Early embryos execute cytoskeletal-mediated changes in a rapid and dramatic fashion and are therefore useful cytoskeletal model systems. This review highlights similarities and differences between somatic cell cytoskeletons and those of amphibian oocytes, eggs and zygotes.
