An ultrastructural study of nuage-mitochondria complexes in spermatogonia of the sea urchin, Anthocidaris crassispina, was carried out. Release of mitochondrial contents into the cytoplasm was observed. The mitochondrial derivatives persisted as cristae-containing globules of friable material that subsequently contacted and integrated with nuage. The(More)
Difficulties in characterization of spermatozoa of the Metazoa are now related to insufficiency of the traditional terms “primitive spermatozoon,” “modified spermatozoon,” and “aberrant spermatozoon” introduced by G. Retzius and A. Franzen for description of intermediate forms discovered in the 20th century. In this respect, some authors propose to reject(More)
To find more morphological characteristics useful for discussion on aralian or non-aralian Panax affinity, pollen morphological diversity was comparatively analysed in P. ginseng, Aralia elata and Oplopanax elatus collected during their pollination periods. In the anthers of both the buds and open flowers, the pollen average diameter varied between some(More)
76 Like in animals, the development of plant male gametes is a lasting process of a gradual structural conversion of early gametes into late ones [1, 2]. The stages of P. ginseng pollen grain development from archesporium to the stages of microspore germination, generative cell division, and sperm formation were described using light microscopy [3, 4].(More)
Literature data on the structure and origin of material of the germ cell line determinants and on the presence of products of nuclear and mitochondrial genomes in the structured germ determinants (nuage) are reviewed. The personal data, obtained on spermatogenic cells of sea urchin and of other marine invertebrates, evidence the transformation of the(More)
This report presents data from ultrastructural and morphometric studies on the germinal-body-like structures, nuage, nuage-mitochondrial clusters and chromatoid bodies in 4.5-day embryo cells and spermatogenic cells of the laboratory mouse Mus musculus. In the 4.5-day embryo cells the germinal-body-like structures that, according to previous data, arise by(More)
Spermatogenesis in the mussel Perna viridis was studied by electron microscopy. Results demonstrated that cytological development in spermatogonia and spermatocytes was similar to that previously described in other Mytilidae. Acrosome formation began with the arising of proacrosomal vesicles in spermatogonia. The abundance of proacrosomal vesicles increased(More)
The ultrastructure of spermatozoa of the Pacific oysters Crassostrea gigas from an industrially polluted area on the Hsinchu City coast and a relatively clean aquaculture area on Penghu Island, Taiwan, was studied. Oyster gonads were sectioned and examined with light and transmission electron microscopes. The number of spermatozoa in the acinus lumen was(More)
 The process of sperm development in the sea urchin Anthocidaris crassispina was studied by light and electron microscopy. Similar to other echinoids studied, a single flagellum, striated rootlet and nuage-like materials were present in spermatogonia of A. crassispina. Spermatocytes near the diplotene stage showed intracellular localization of the axoneme(More)
Chronic pollution may impair the reproductive success of adult organisms through a decrease in the quality of gametes. Our parallel study on gamete quality, showed that male sea urchins were more sensitive than the females towards cadmium pollution. The effects of chronic exposure to 0.01 and 1 ppm Cd2+ on sperm development of the sea urchin Anthocidaris(More)
