【Significance】
Biophysics in oviduct; from PCP, cilia, morphogenesis, to physiologies

The oviduct in the female reproductive tract functions to convey eggs from the ovary to the uterus. To exert this function, alignment of cilia in luminal epithelia, alignment of epithelial folds, and smooth muscle contraction are involved in. Planar cell polarity (PCP) is essential for the formation of some of these structures and also the continuity of the tube. In this review, we discuss how these multiscale structures are formed and how these structures confer the physiological roles of the oviduct. The oviduct is a good model to study multiscale morphogenesis and its contribution to organ physiological roles.
