"Zygote" in context

A zygote is a single-celled fertilized egg that is derived from the fusion of two gametes during sexual reproduction. The zygote is the first stage of cellular development in the embryonic life cycle and is the basis for all multicellular organisms, from molluscs to mammals. Upon fertilization, the egg is activated and begins to rapidly divide and replicate to form a collection of cells. This process of cellular reproduction is known as cleavage. The zygote itself is considered totipotent, meaning that it has the potential to become any cell type in the body.
