In this article we shall look at both spermatogenesis and oogenesis. Sperm are continually produced as males need to be ready to utilise the small window of fertility of the female. The blood-testis barrier is formed by Sertoli cells and is important in preventing hormones and constituents of the systemic circulation from affecting the developing sperm, and also in preventing the immune system of the male from recognising the sperm as foreign — as the sperm are genetically different from the male and will express different surface antigens. Sertoli cells also have a role in supporting the developing spermatozoa.

About Translations. Meiosis is the special type of recombinative and reductive cell division occurring only in the generation of the gametes or germ cells oocyte and spermatozoa. For recombination, meiosis requires that homologous chromosomes are properly paired and aligned by the induction of DNA double-strand breaks by the enzyme SPO11 during the prophase of the first meiotic division.
Meiotic cell division also reduces halves the chromosomal content. The overall process of germ cell development is called "gametogenesis" and includes not only meiosis but also the cellular morphological changes, that occur differently in male and female gametes.

The breakdown of the germinal vesicle indicates a resumption of meiosis and the extrusion of the first polar body 1 PB indicates completion of the first meiotic division in human oocytes.
The polar body is a small cytoplasmic exclusion body formed to enclose the excess DNA formed during the oocyte egg meiosis and following sperm fertilization. There are polar bodies derived from the oocyte present in the zygote, the number is dependent upon whether polar body 1 the first polar body formed during meiosis 1 divides during meiosis 2. This exclusion body contains the excess DNA from the reductive division the second and third polar bodies are formed from meiosis 2 at fertilization.
These polar bodies do not contribute to the future genetic complement of the zygote, embryo or fetus. Recent research in some species suggest that the space formed by the peripheral polar body between the oocyte and the zona pellucia can influence the site of spermatozoa fertilization.
Assisted reproductive techniques involving intracytoplasmic sperm injection ICSI have looked at the "quality" of the polar body and found that the morphology is related to mature oocyte viability and has the potential to predict oocyte fertilization rates and pregnancy achievement. Meiotic non-disjunction resulting in aneuploidy, most are embryonic lethal and not seen. The potential for genetic abnormalities increase with maternal age.
In males, sperm continues to be generated throughout life from a stem cell population in the testis. Spermatozoa maturation involves two processes meiosis and spermiogenesis. The above figure compares meiosis to the female the polar bodies have been removed and labelling updated.

Research into the development of stem cell-derived SCD gametes in humans, otherwise known as in vitro gametogenesis IVG , is largely motivated by reproductive aims. Especially, the goal of establishing genetic parenthood by means of SCD-gametes is considered an important aim. However, like other applications in the field of assisted reproduction, this technology evokes worries about the possibility of creating so-called 'designer babies. We argue that IVG might facilitate the creation of preference-matched offspring, but conclude that this should not undermine the moral acceptability of IVG altogether-even if one concedes the premise that creating 'designer babies' is morally problematic. In the light of this, we also point at a possible inconsistency for a position that condemns the creation of 'designer offspring,' while accepting the various endeavors to have genetically related offspring. Keywords: artificial gametes; assisted reproduction; designer babies; gamete derivation; gene editing; genetic parenthood; in vitro gametogenesis; stem cells.
