Dr.  D L Poccia

Position

Professor

Research Description

My research concerns nuclear transformations of the sea urchin sperm during spermatogenesis (when the male germ line nucleus is globally silenced to form the sperm nucleus) and following fertilization (when the egg reactivates the sperm nucleus to form the male pronucleus which contributes one half of the new zygote's genome). Current work focusses on membrane fusion and the formation of the nuclear envelope using a cell-free system.
