Pronuclei and polar bodies

  1. Mar 6, 2005 #1
    in male pronuclei and sperm pronuclei, they differ in formation because the male has an Y chromsome where female has both XX right? are there any other differences?

    and how do the first and second polar bodies differ in terms of their chrosome content?

    I'm not sure what other differences you might be looking for? Timing of production? Size? Cell types?

    The first is formed during Meiosis I and the second during Meiosis II. What's different between the chromosomes of cells at those two stages of meiosis?
