  Ovule - MSN Encarta
Ovule literally means "small egg." In seed plants, the ovule is the structure that gives rise to and contains the female reproductive cells.
ovule In seed plants, a protective structure in which the female gametophyte develops, fertilization occurs, and seeds develop; contained within the ovary.
Two sperms are then discharged into the embryo sac; one of these fuses with the egg nucleus at the micropylar end of the embryo sac, and this fertilized egg then develops into the embryo of the seed.

  Ovule Development Mutants
In ovule development ANT mRNA is initially present in the entire ovule primordium but the zone of mRNA is refined to the chalazal region by the time integument primordia emerge (Elliott et al., 1996).
Meiosis usually doesn't occur in ant ovules and an embryo sac is not formed (Klucher et al., 1996; Elliott et al., 1996; Baker et al., 1997).
In contrast, in sup ovules asymmetric formation of the outer integument primordium is followed by uniform extension of the integument around the circumference of the ovules (Gaiser et al., 1995).

 Ovule Sterility and Seed Set in Alfalfa
The possible role of developing ovule nutriti~n in sterility was investigated by recording the percentage of callosized ovules in relation to the position of the ovules within the ovary for B 17 and other three plants (Fig.2).
The regression of the mean ovule sterility of offspring on midparents provided an estimate of narrow-sense heritability of 0.85, with a standard error of 0.11, demonstrating that additive gene action is prevalent and that a small number of genes should be involved.
Callosized ovules were found in all of the populations, from a minimum of 4% average sterility per plant in Wisfal to a Maximum of 26% in M. coerulea, and the differences between populations were significant.

 Ovule - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In conifers and similar plants known as Gymnosperms (meaning naked seed), the ovules are borne unenclosed on the surface of an ovuliferous (ovule-bearing) scale, usually within a cone.
Prior to fertilization, the ovule consists of the female gametophyte, the nucellus, and integuments, which in Angiosperms are attached to the placental wall of the fruit through a structure known as the funiculus.
The mature female gametophyte (or megagametophyte) is a seven-celled, eight nucleate organ in the haploid gametophyte phase of the plant life cycle that develops within the ovule.

Tube entry into the ovule appears to be not influenced by the number of tubes near a micropyle; targeting was achieved regardless of whether one or multiple tubes were in the vicinity of an ovule (see Additional files 1, 2, 3, 4).
The species specificity and diffusion properties of the ovule attractant are consistent with a protein signal, while the abrupt transmission and response to the repellent suggests the activity of a small molecule, a peptide, or post-translational modifications to signals present before fertilization.
Excised ovules were immediately placed on the pollen growth medium, ~2 mm from the pistil, a distance that was typically accessible by the emerging pollen tubes.

 An Ovule Culture Technique for Producing Interspecific Lesquerella Hybrids
The first was to develop an ovule culture protocol specific to Lesquerella for the regeneration of immature ovules from interspecific hybrid crosses and, if necessary, from subsequent backcross generations.
Ovule germination rates ranged from 0% to 40%, depending on the species involved in the cross and generational stage.
This may be why the ovule germination percentage (11.3%) is lower than all of the (P × F) × (F or P) BC crosses that were derived from colchicine treated, fertile maternal parents.

 Specification of Identity
The ovule is a modular structure (see below) and the identity of certain elements of the ovule appears to be regulated separately.
It was therefore suggested that BEL1 exerts a cadastral function and prevents the misexpression of AG in the ovule (Modrusan et al, 1994; Ray et al, 1994).
It is, however, unclear whether AG plays a role in ovule development after all, because ovules develop in ap2-2 ag double mutants (Bowman et al, 1991b), and overexpression of AG does not lead to the formation of carpels in place of ovules (Mizukami and Ma, 1992).

 RESEARCH OVERVIEW
Parallel studies demonstrated that the postpollination syndrome in orchids, ranging from perianth senescence to ovule differentiation in the ovary, involve coordinated interorgan regulation of expression of the two key ethylene biosynthetic genes, ACC synthase and ACC oxidase (O'Neill et al., 1993; Nadeau et al., 1993).
Our studies of pollination-induced ovule differentiation in the Phalaenopsis orchid flower have established the basic information of timing and hormonal stimuli to allow further characterization of gene expression associated with the timing of major developmental transitions during ovule development (Zhang and O'Neill, 1993).
We have isolated ovule developmental stage-specific mRNA, constructed stage-specific cDNA libraries capturing key developmental events occurring during the archesporial cell, megaspore mother cell and mature embryo sac stages, and have identified a large number of ovule-specific, differentially expressed cDNA clones corresponding to the major ovule developmental transitions of megasporogenesis and embryo sac development.

 Biology 2402 Lecture Notes - Fertilization and Seed Development in Angiosperms
One to several ovules are contained within the ovary which have the potential to mature into seeds.
The key events that take place in the carpel are megasporogenesis, the formation of megaspores by meiosis, the development of the megagametophyte (also known as the embryo sac), the development of ovules which mature into seeds after fertilization, and the development of fruits to disperse the seeds.
Recall that ovules form in the ovary and that the ovary is a unit of the carpel which is part of the gynoecium.

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Sept. 25, 1998 -- The first three-day ovule treatment for bacterial vaginosis (BV) in non-pregnant women was the focus of a study presented at the 38th interscience conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC).
Three multicentre studies were performed in North America and Europe by Pharmacia and Upjohn to investigate the use of either clindamycin vaginal cream or a new clindamycin vaginal ovule for three-day treatment when compared to standard seven-day treatments with either metronidazole or clindamycin cream.
Results of all three clinical studies showed that a three-day regimen of either clindamycin cream or ovule is as effective as a seven-day regimen of either metronidazole or clindamycin vaginal cream.

I examined the effect of ovule position on patterns of ovule development within the linear pods of fl locust, Robinia pseudoacacia L. Fruits were sampled from three sites in southwestern Ontario, Canada.
Patterns of seed maturation and abortion within fruits were nonrandom and depended on ovule position.
Hence, ovule position exerts an influence on offspring vigour and has the potential, ultimately, to affect plant fitness.
