Balbiani body, nuage and sponge bodies--term plasm pathway players.
TLDR
The present article reviews the current knowledge on morphology, molecular composition and functioning of these organelles in main lineages of arthropods and different ovary types on the backdrop of data derived from the studies of the model vertebrate species. Expand
Are aryl hydrocarbon receptor and G-protein-coupled receptor 30 involved in the regulation of seasonal testis activity in photosensitive rodent-the bank vole (Myodes glareolus)?
TLDR
It is likely that in vole, because of a differential activity of signaling molecules, signal transduction via AHR rather than through GPR30 plays a role in regulation of seasonal changes of testis physiology. Expand
Exclusion of dysfunctional mitochondria from Balbiani body during early oogenesis of Thermobia
TLDR
A computer-aided 3D reconstruction of the Balbiani body in the growing oocytes of an insect, Thermobia domestica, suggests that the Bb is implicated in the selective elimination of dysfunctional mitochondria during oogenesis. Expand
Selection of mitochondria in female germline cells: is Balbiani body implicated in this process?
TLDR
A simple model explaining the role of the Balbiani body in the selection of mitochondria is proposed, i.e., in the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) bottleneck phenomenon. Expand
Telocytes in the mouse testicular interstitium: implications of G-protein-coupled estrogen receptor (GPER) and estrogen-related receptor (ERR) in the regulation of mouse testicular interstitial cells
TLDR
For the first time, the presence of TCs are revealed in the interstitium together with the peritubular area of mouse testis, and these cells should be considered a unique and useful target cell type for the prevention and treatment of testicular interstitial tissue disorders based on estrogen-signaling disturbances. Expand
Regulation of steroidogenic function of mouse Leydig cells: G-coupled membrane estrogen receptor and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor partnership.
TLDR
The importance of GPER-PPARα and -PPARγ 'neopartnership' in maintenance of Leydig cell morpho-functional status is reported here for the first time. Expand
Differing strategies of patterning of follicular cells in higher and lower brachycerans (Diptera: Brachycera)
TLDR
Findings indicate that in higher dipterans the processes leading to the formation of a functional egg are variable and often markedly different from those in the model organism, D. melanogaster. Expand
Meiosis, Balbiani body and early asymmetry of Thermobia oocyte
TLDR
Following the course of initial stages of meiotic division in ovaries of Thermobia domestica using modified techniques of squash preparations, semithin sections, and electron microscopy, it is shown that germaria contain numerous germline cells that can be classified into three categories: cystoblasts, meiotic oocytes, and growing previtellogenic oocytes. Expand
Morphology of the ovarioles and the mode of oogenesis of Arixenia esau support the inclusion of Arixeniina to the Eudermaptera
TLDR
The histological and EM analyses of oogenesis and ovariole structure/ultrastructure in a representative of Arixeniina, Arixenia esau show that the studied species shares several important “ovariolar” characters with derived earwigs (Forficulidae), which reinforces the inclusion of the AriXeniina to the Eudermaptera. Expand
Ovaries and phylogeny of dermapterans once more: Ovarian characters support paraphyly of Spongiphoridae
TLDR
Results of histological analyses of ovaries and ovarioles in two representatives of Spongiphoridae: Chaetospania borneensis and Irdex chapmani are presented, showing that both the ovaries of studied species are morphologically disparate. Expand
