. Draw a labeled diagram of a Graafian follicle

Best Answer

Graafian follicle


The secondary follicle becomes larger, turning into a mature( Graafian) follicle. 

While in the mature follicle just before ovulation, the diploid primary oocyte completes meiosis I and produces two haploid (n) cells, of unequal size.

The larger cell is called the secondary oocyte and the smaller one is called the first polar body, a packet of discarded nuclear material. 

The larger cell that is a secondary oocyte, begins its meiosis II but then stops at metaphase.

The mature( Graafian ) follicle ruptures and releases its secondary oocyte, by a process known as ovulation.
