Pronuclear fusion is the final step of the sperm and egg cells coming together to produce a fertilized zygote. The egg and sperm both contain haploid pronuclei, and when the sperm is enclosed by the egg cell, the two pronuclei begin to migrate towards each other with the help of microtubules. The sperm pronucleus swells, while the female pronucleus keeps its irregular shape. When the pronuclei are about to fuse, the pronuclear envelopes become parallel to each other to allow for complete fusion of the membranes. Upon this fusion, the two sets of chromatin come together, resulting in a diploid zygote nucleus, which can then begin its process of fetus production.
