Mol Cell Biol 23, 8982–8991 (2003). 4 Structure of the ZPD As mentioned previously, the ZPD is a bipartite structure consisting of two sub‐ domains, ZP‐N and ZP‐C, linked by a protease‐sensitive region. However, ZP‐N can serve as an independent structural domain since it is present in ZPD proteins Plac1, Oosp1, and papillote in the absence of the ZP‐C sub‐domain. In addition, divergent copies of ZP‐N are found in single or multiple copies in the N‐terminal extensions of ZP1, 2, 4, and ax (Fig. 1).

The ZPD of hamster ZP1 is 82% identical with and 95% similar to the ZPD of mZP1.
