Functions of proteins secreted by oviduct epithelial cells.


:Studies on embryonic development in vitro as well as observations in vivo, suggested that two aspects of oviduct physiology are important for early development. On one side has to be considered the oviduct "environment": temperature, pH, osmotic pressure, nutrients, oxygen tension, free radical scavengers, etc. On the other, the oviduct "active components": stimulatory and/or regulatory molecules, supposed to finely regulate the fertilisation process and the first differentiative steps. While the physical environment of the oviduct has been under investigation for some decades, studies on oviduct-specific molecules and their functions have only been developed much more recently. The amount of information on this topic, however, has rapidly reached the size that demands a summary. In this review the descriptive literature on oviduct specific proteins will be examined as a basis for illustrating the possible functions of these molecules. In particular their role in fertilisation and early embryonic cleavages will be analysed in some details. Finally a section is devoted to the presence and physiological significance of growth factors in oviduct fluid.
