Oocyte transport along the uterine tube is facilitated by epithelial cilia and the contractions of the muscular layer.
  • cilia - uterine tube epithelial cell apical membrane specialisation. Mollie structure with a core of microtubules. Epithelium consists of ciliated and secretory cells.
  • muscular layer - uterine tube wall smooth muscle (muscularis layer) consists of an inner circular muscle layer and an outer longitudinal layer. An additional inner longitudinal layer is present in the isthmus and the intramural part. A peristaltic-like contraction aids movement.
