Editorial on the Research Topic Molecular and Cellular Physiology of Gametes in Domestic and Wild Animal ModelsGamete physiology contributes not only to the zygote formation but also to early embryo development. In mammals, most of the knowledge has been acquired from research on the murine and human models. This topic fills the information gap related to the effect of male and female microenvironments over sperm physiology from different species and offers critical and new insights into the molecular mechanism of gametes? maturation to acquire fertilizing competence in wild and domestic animals.It includes 16 original research articles divided into three Research Topic: 1) oocyte maturation; 2) sperm fertilizing ability in response to female reproductive environment, and 3) molecular evaluation of seminal plasma related to sperm quality.
