Method "Extracellular zinc events were monitored during fertilization of mouse eggs using a membrane-impermeant derivative of the zinc fluorophore FluoZin-3."
Comments "The interval between each exocytic event was 9.5±0.8 min (mean±SEM, N = 36), although the range of intervals was quite broad, between 3.46 and 26.00 min."
