The nuclear structure of insect oocyte is described with reference to interchromatin granule clusters and Cajal bodies. It is suggested that the intranuclear structure is determined by the ovary organization and reflects the sources of oocyte RNA. Inactivated oocyte chromosomes in meroistic ovaries form a karyosphere, and their features are discussed. In(More)
IGCs (interchromatin granule clusters), or nuclear speckles, are one of the most universal subnuclear organelles of eukaryotic cells. We have used insect oocytes to study the possible association of poly(A)+ RNA and some factors involved in mRNA export with IGCs. Oogenesis of the mecopteran, Panorpa communis, used as a model object, is characterized by a(More)
Interchromatin granule clusters (IGCs), also known as nuclear speckles, splicing factor compartments, or SC35-domains, are one of the most universal nuclear organelles of the cell. We have used two-cell mouse embryos as an experimental system to study the possible association of poly(A)+ RNA and factors involved in RNA export (Tip-associated protein [TAP](More)
The karyosphere and nuclear bodies (NBs) were studied in Tenebrio molitor oocytes using immunoelectron cytochemistry. During early diplotene (previtellogenic stage), oocyte chromosomes begin to unite in a small nuclear volume forming the karyosphere. In vitellogenic oocyte nuclei, the chromatin undergoes condensation, and the karyosphere acquires a(More)
Ultrastructural and immunomorphological characteristics of the developing karyosphere and extrachromosomal nuclear bodies (NBs) in Tenebrio molitor oocytes are presented. Three consecutive stages of karyosphere development were identified: reticular, compact and ring-shaped. At the beginning of the karyosphere development (reticular and compact stages),(More)
It is now clear that two prominent nuclear domains, interchromatin granule clusters (IGCs) and Cajal bodies (CBs), contribute to the highly ordered organization of the extrachromosomal space of the cell nucleus. These functional domains represent structurally stable but highly dynamic nuclear organelles enriched in factors that are required for different(More)
The organization and molecular composition of complicated Cajal bodies (CBs) and interchromatin granule clusters (IGCs) in oocytes of the house cricket, Acheta domesticus, were studied using immunofluorescent/confocal and Immunogold labeling/electron microscopy. In A. domesticus oocytes, the CB consists of the fibrillar matrix and a central cavity(More)
In oocyte nuclei of the scorpionfly, Panorpa communis, we have recently defined a population of nuclear bodies (NBs) that contain some components of Cajal bodies (CBs). In the present study, we used several criteria [presence of coilin, U7 snRNA, RNA polymerase II (pol II) and specific ultrastructure] to identify these NBs as CBs. The essential evidence for(More)
Spatial interactions between nuclear actin and some proteins of the exon-exon junction complex (EJC) have been demonstrated in the nuclei of early mouse embryos by using Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET). FRET has been registered for the pairs actin-Y14, actin–Aly/REF and actin–NXF1/TAP in nucleoplasmic, irregularly shaped zones and in nucleolus(More)
In the present study we used 5-bromouridine 5'-triphosphate (BrUTP) microinjections to localize the transcription sites in oocytes of insects with different types of the ovarium structure: panoistic, meroistic polytrophic, and meroistic telotrophic. We found that in an insect with panoistic ovaries (Acheta domesticus), oocyte nuclei maintain their(More)
