Ovum

Ovum

Ovum or oocyte, (erroneously also called oocyte) biology, is a female sex cell produced by the ovaries contained within the ovarian follicle.

Considered the largest cell in the human body, has about 200 microns (thousandth part of a millimeter) or a fifth of a millimeter.

Also known as feminine gametes, which provides half of the genetic load of the future embryo, após a fecundação, the ovum is now called zygote.
