Fallopian tube, Biology

Fallopian tube:
  • There are two fallopian tubes connected to the uterus one on each side of it.
  • The ovum released from the ovarian follicle enters the fallopian tube.
  • The anterior end of the fallopian tube is funnel shaped.
  • This funnel shaped structure has several finger like projections.
  • The fallopian tube has cilia which help in the movement of the ovum.
  • The cilia and the muscles present in the fallopian tube help in the movement of the ovum into uterus.
  • In human beings, fertilization occurs in the fallopian tubes.
  • In family planning operations these fallopian tubes are cut in the tubectomy operations to prevent fertilization.
