  1. Cappa A, de Paola M, Wetten P, De Blas G, Michaut M. Live imaging of cortical granule exocytosis reveals that in vitro matured mouse oocytes are not fully competent to secrete their content. Biol Open. 2018;7: pubmed publisher
    ..We propose the analysis of CGE in live oocytes as a biological test to evaluate the competence of IVM mouse oocytes.This article has an associated First Person interview with the first author of the paper. ..
  2. Bello O, Cappa A, de Paola M, Zanetti M, Fukuda M, Fissore R, et al. Rab3A, a possible marker of cortical granules, participates in cortical granule exocytosis in mouse eggs. Exp Cell Res. 2016;347:42-51 pubmed publisher
    ..Altogether, our findings confirm that Rab3A might function as a marker of cortical granules and participates in cortical granule exocytosis in mouse eggs. ..
  3. Arcos A, Paola M, Gianetti D, Acuña D, Velasquez Z, Miró M, et al. ?-SNAP is expressed in mouse ovarian granulosa cells and plays a key role in folliculogenesis and female fertility. Sci Rep. 2017;7:11765 pubmed publisher
    ..Consequently, a reduction in its expression/function (M105I mutation) causes early depletion of ovarian follicles and female subfertility. ..
